Meet Prabhat Jha. He founded an organization called Eejot, which means "light." Its mission is to improve and facilitate education in remote villages in Nepal.

Recently, he traveled back to the village in Nepal where he grew up, and turned his vacation into an opportunity to give back to his community. Watch the video to learn more about the work of Eejot, which includes mentoring and education, health camps, and open source awareness seminars.

I've worked at Red Hat since 2002. I started in Corporate Training and Organizational Development, and now work as our Senior Manager, Brand Communications + Design. I split my time leading our Digital Media team and working on Red Hat culture. Before Red Hat, I worked at The Body Shop as Director, Learning and Development. The common thread? A passion for people, cultures, human and team dynamics, and storytelling.

What is open education?
