The 5th edition of Kantipur HISSAN Edufair, which took place from May 24 to 27, 2018, saw the presence of more than a 100 colleges and schools this year. The expo took part with the aim of facilitating students gain information about multiple colleges under one roof. The expo was a big success with an expected footfall of around 200,000 people in the four days.
As one of the sponsors of the event, our main agenda to take part in the event was to make the mass aware of the technological enhancement in the payment of school/college fees. We have made it possible for both schools and colleges to digitize the fee payment through our services. We also invited our Brand Ambassador Bipin Karki, the versatile actor from the movie Pashupati Prasad, to our stall for a meet and greet session on the third day of the expo.
Accessible education comes under one of the main Millennial Development Goals for Nepal. With organizations and institutions working to make the education more affordable and better, eSewa strives to make the payment part of the process efficient and hassle-free. With our involvement in the four days of the educational fair, we imparted the knowledge of payment digitization to thousands of students and hundreds of schools and institutions. We also distributed free NTC SIM cards to students in these four days. Our stall received an overwhelming response from the visitors and partners which has fuelled our enthusiasm even more for the upcoming days.
