New Era

New ERA, one of the first non-governmental research institution in Nepal, founded by a group of Peace Corps Volunteers and Nepalese educators to provide research support for the implementation of the Nepal Education System Plan, 1971. Thoroughly committed to the goal of helping assure the highest possible standard of education for Nepal, New ERA as a matter of policy adopted two strategies. First, it aimed to develop itself as an independent educational research and development institution. Second, it aimed to serve as a support agency to technical assistance programs and foreign scholars. Notwithstanding its critical exclusive focus on education, the scope of New ERA's research activities quickly broadened to include other aspects of national development. By mid-1970s, New ERA was involved in projects concerning rural and human resources development, communications and women development. Later half of the 1970s saw New ERA engaged in training (language and culture) for foreign technical and volunteer agencies such as the American Peace Corps and in the implementation of Semester Abroad Program for American college students. In early 1980s New ERA's activities expanded to newer fields like agriculture, livestock, horticulture, communications, drinking water and sanitation, forestry, environment, gender issues, human resources, migration and resettlement, population and family planning, health and nutrition, rural development and technology, socio-economics and tourism. In the beginning New ERA's projects were designed, negotiated and carried out jointly by the Nepalese and Americans. As New ERA got more organized with Nepalese attaining Capabilities of directing the activities, expatriate participation was gradually phased out. It eventually ended in 1977. Although New ERA was run entirely by a team of Nepalese professionals, it was only in 1981 that it became a Nepalese organization in the real sense of the term.
