Mahabir Pun Makes Education His Mission
Mahabir Pun shares his personal story in a short documentary created by Ericsson’s Networked Society campaign. In the piece, Pun talks about the importance of having a “strong education,” and how, for him, it was unattainable because he lived in a rural Nepal village. Because of this experience, Pun made it his mission to connect Nepalese villages to the Internet, ensuring that his people would have the opportunity to get a good education. To date, he has networked 175 villages through his organization, the Nepal Wireless Networking Project.
