National Geographic Society’s 2020 Class of Emerging Explorers

Aeloi’s CTO & co-founder, Ms. Sonika Manandhar


A week ago, National Geographic Society announced their 2020 Emerging Explorers and our co-founder Sonika Manandhar was one of them. This award is a recognition to a decade of Ms. Sonika Manandhar’s work as a computer engineer and for the work we do at Aeloi. Along with her, there were other seven incredible 2020 Emerging Explorers: Enrique Lomnitz, Diva Amon, Joy Buolamwini, Adams Cassinga, Tamara Merino, Anthony Obayomi and Ali Pressel. Congratulations to all these incredible changemakers doing their part to transform the world for better.

National Geographic Society recognizes and elevates the global changemakers and helps shine the light to the work they are doing around the globe. These global changemakers of the latest class of 2020 are chosen for empowering next generation of changemakers and to show the power of science and exploration to transform the world.

Awards like these always motivate companies like Aeloi and individual changemakers like Ms. Sonika Manandhar to do remarkable works illuminating the issues of our world and transform it for better. We would like to thank the National Geographic Society for the recognition of our work. Here’s to changing the world with technology and exploration!
