Central Asia Institute
Greg Mortenson is a visionary whose approach to promoting peace has struck a powerful chord globally. His story is found in his two New York Times bestselling books. His organization, Central Asia Institute, has built 130 schools in remote villages of northern Pakistan and Afghanistan in the last 16 years. Their major target is the education of girls.
Mortenson has been nominated twice for the Nobel Peace Prize and has received one of the highest civil honors awarded by the government of Pakistan. Branches of the military now use him as a teacher and consultant, and the Pentagon has adopted Three Cups of Teas required reading for all officers enrolled in counterinsurgency courses.
