Abstract:

"Greg Mortenson is the co-founder of the nonprofit Central Asia Institute, founder of Pennies for Peace, and co-author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Three cups of tea. In 1993, Mortenson climbed Pakistan's K2, the world's second highest mountain. While recovering from K2 in the village of Korphe, Mortenson made a promise to help the village build a school for its children. From that rash promise, grew a remarkable humanitarian campaign, in which Mortenson has dedicated his life to promote education, especially for girls, in the remote and often volatile regions of Pakistan and Afghanistan. As of 2008, Mortenson has established over 78 schools, which provide education to over 28,000 children where few education opportunities existed before."--Container.
