TEDxWanChai 2011: Child Welfare Scheme by Douglas MacLagan

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.
