I am so proud to see my birthplace has become the first country to achieve WWF’s Tx2 goal – to double the number of wild tigers by 2022 – the next Chinese year of the tiger. The wild tiger population has jumped from 121 in 2009 to 235 in Nepal as of September 2018. In addition to the encouraging news of me getting more tiger friends, I am also very glad that the Nepali government has set aside $18 million USD last year to fund connectivity projects in 18 regions of the country including remote villages in Northern Himalaya where I was born. #Tx2 #doubletigers #roarforward #InternetAccess #SDGs
