This paper focuses on an interpretive case study in Nepal to widen the understanding of how locally-initiated ICT4D projects may help to narrow educational, healthcare, information, and communication gaps between urban and remote communities. The study utilises the Assets Pentagon Model to identify the strengths and challenges of the Nepal Wireless Networking Project (NWNP) in the mountain areas, and to identify implications for research and practice based on insights from the case.
