My Friend Lee Thorn set up the Jhai Foundation a few years ago because he wanted to start the process of reconciliation between Laotians and the wealthy world that spent so much of its wealth turning Laos into the most bombed, most mined most devastated nation on the face of the earth, and did it in secret. Failed by the UN, by the media and by those who had a responsibility to know and act, Laos has been evilly abused and has survived. Now Lee and his team have wrought a whole miracle that will change the face of communications for developing nations.
Meeting the express needs of 5 villages that have neither electricity nor telephones, they have built the Pedal-Powered Wireless Communications Network and Internet Access, I had an e-mail last night, from the first Internet connected tree in Laos. Photo Gallery More to come
