Three Cups Of Tea

Three Cups Of Tea

By Greg Mortenson

This is one of the more inspiring books I have come across about the importance of determination and sheer will in the face of adversity.  Mortenson, a mountain climber turned goodwill ambassador who survived a kidnapping and death threats, single-handedly spearheaded a movement to build schools throughout Pakistan and Afghanistan, primarily for young girls who would otherwise have little hope of formal education.  His clarity of vision, ability to work within systems that would destroy lesser men, and focus, prove that each of us has the ability to change the world.

Available in children’s, young adult and adult versions through Amazon.com (7% of your purchase goes to the Central Asia Institute) and your local library.
