Mahabir Pun After earning his master’s degree in education at the University of Nebraska at Kearney in 1992, Pun returned to his native village of Nangi, in the Myagdi district of Nepal, with a dream: to provide better educational opportunities for the children in the remote Himalayan foothills. He upgraded the village school and made it not only a source of education, but also the hub of community development projects.
