Three Cups of Tea

Just finished reading the amazing story of Greg Mortenson and his mission in Pakistan in the book “Three Cups of Tea”. Failed ascent on K2, Greg was brought to a rural and remote village, promising one day to return and build these villagers a school. Ten Years later more than 50 schools have been built by the Institute formed by him and Dr. Jean Hoerni.

What an amazing effort this man has done to enable thousands of young poor Pakistani to receive primary education and enable girls and boys to attend higher education schools, seeding a plant of knowledge in a country forgotting by most of the world.

I pay my respects and recommend everybody to not only visit Greg Mortenson’s website, but also check out his Pennies For Peace initiative and the Central Asia Institute.
