Its been a little more than a year since the Lingshed Monastery was energized by the Global Himalayan Expedition and IEEE Smart Village.  This village was featured in a National Geographic program, BreakThrough: Power to the People http://channel.nationalgeographic.com/breakthrough-series/episodes/power-to-the-people/ which aired in June, 2017.  The villagers have now setup the Himalayan Innovation Centre (HIC) at Lingshed School with local computer based curriculum RACHEL and Raspberry PI computers.
Along with their village school, they have evening tuition classes at HIC where students are learning mathematics and science through interactive videos provided through RACHEL PI.
