Each week, the upcoming host will answer several questions about their background and give a brief overview of their language. This Q&A is with Pushker Kadel (@KadelPushker) who will provide a sneak preview of what he will be discussing during his week as host.
Rising Voices (RV): Please tell us about yourself.
Pushker Kadel (PK): I am a language, education and development practitioner involved in implementing language and education-based development activities. I spent about two and half decades on these issues in Nepal.
These days I am not directly involved in any organizations but I help organizations and individuals as per their request as a facilitator and trainer. I also provide consultation services to design language, education and development projects.
RV: What topics do you plan to focus on during the week that you’ll manage the @AsiaLangsOnline Twitter account?
PK: I'm planning to discuss education philosophy, objectives and policy for the nation.
RV: What are the main motivations for your activism ? What are your hopes and dreams for language and education policy in Nepal?
PK: My main motivation is to create a level of awareness among the key stakeholders, which will help to reform the education system to provide quality education for all.
