Three Cups of Tea
Three Cups of Tea by Greg Mortenson and David Oliver Relin is a good book to read. It is an account of how Greg Mortenson started many schools in Pakistan to educate the girls in that country. Here in the United States, I think we don't realize how fortunate we are that all people get to attend school. In Pakistan there are many places that school is not an option. Girls are even less likely to attend school. Mortenson has spent more than ten years trying to make schools more accessible. The difficulties that he encountered and the sacrifices he has made tell much about his passion for this. It is amazing what kind of difference a person with a passion for helping others can make in our world. If you want to know more about this book or Mortenson's work, look at the website for the book at http://www.threecupsoftea.com/. Adventurers and educators should read this book. It would also make a great book to read for a book club. Has anyone read this?
