Ashoka commemorates and celebrates the life and work of this deceased Ashoka Fellow.

Khun Sun Rupsung, who has been a village teacher in Thailand's poor Northeast since he was a teenager, is demonstrating how to diversify the region's local economies while integrating and making effective use of the growing number of elementary school leavers.
