An inspiring and emotive story about a Scotsman who hikes through Nepal and is struck by the poverty and lack of education in the Western region amongst the Tamang and Gurung communities -- a region where many young lads are recruited to become British and Indian Gurkha soldiers. Douglas focus was initially on primary health accessibility -- due to the many thousands of children perishing below the age of 5. He returned later to set up Education Programs and shelters for at-risk children. In thespirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
