March 5, 2012 Education a lifeline for Penan kids Wilson Bian, Long Lamai Headman, says that the Internet has opened their eyes to the world outside and to tourism, which many welcome as a sustainable source of badly needed income. “I understand tourism can bring about changes.

We are keen to learn new things,” says Wilson.
