Surendra, 24, believes that technology can solve many of the most pressing problems in Nepal. He is developing a cloud-based mobile application that will empower citizens by allowing direct communication with the recently elected representatives. By bridging the communication gaps between government leaders and the public, Surendra seeks to reduce corruption and promote good governance. Surendra, who is chairman of a youth organization, believes the training and mentorship from the Lab will help him grow his idea into a sustainable model for civic engagement.
