"Three Cups of Tea" : One Man's Mission to Promote Peace...One School at a Time.

by Greg Mortenson & David Oliver Relin


This is an important book.......right now! It's an outsider's inside look at what schools mean to people who want to educate their children, especially their daughters, and can't. It shows first hand what Mortenson was willing to do to bring hope to isolated villages, in this case in Pakistan and Afganistan.

He found a need and found a way to fulfill that need, by building schools. Then he searched for collaborators and funds. And he's been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.

Read it.

It´s a very good example of social entrepreneurship(what a word!) Thank you very much for the advice. For those who are interested in these topics, pay attention to our "Premio UEM Jóvenes Emprendedores Sociales". It´s amazing what they are able to do. Have a look http://premios.uem.es/
