Here (in Pakistan and Afghanistan) we drink three cups of tea to do business, the first you are a stranger, the second you became a friend, and the third you join our family, and for our family we are prpared to do anything – even die.
Haji Ali,Korphe Village Chief. Karakoram Mountains, Pakistan
The astonishing, uplifting story of a real life Indiana Jones and his remarkable humanitarian campaings in the taliban’s backyards.
In 1993 a mountainer named Greg Mortenson drifted into an impoverished Paquistan village in the Karakoran mountains after a failed attempt to climb K2. Moved by the inhabitants’ kidness, he promised to return and build a school. Over the next decade Mortenson built not just one but fifty-five schools – specially for girls- in the forbidding terrain that gave birth to the Taliban . His story is at once a riverting adventure and a testament to the power of th humanitarian spirit.
The book that changed the way people think about changing the world: Peace through education.
Three cups of tea es una inspiradora y verdadera historia. Muchos han pasado por el lugar, la diferencia esta en que Greg Mortenson cumplió su promesa, reunió dinero y volvió a Pakistan a construir la primer escuela.Un espiritu humanitario, un hombre con carácter y determinación, una combinación perfecta…que puede cambiar el mundo.
