His main focus for the selfless community work is to send the message that people can make a healthy living via WordPress and there are other alternatives than just going abroad with one reason or the other.
He believes in the theory that if more people are into developing platforms like WordPress, more jobs we can pull into Nepal which will eventually create more jobs for other Nepalis. We will be creating entrepreneurs and this will itself be one big industry. This could, then, lead to a big sigh of relief in the country’s ever going downward economy…. and this is not limited to theory at this point, ithas already started to gain momentum.
