Thank you very much for your time and nice comments.
Greg Mortenson is a big name who did a great job in the Karakoram region.
In 1993, to honor his sister’s memory, Mortenson climbed Pakistan’s K2, the world’s second highest mountain in the Karakoram range.
After K2, while recovering in a local village called Korophon, Mortenson met a group of children sitting in the dirt writing with sticks in the sand, and made a promise to help them build a school.
From that rash promise, grew a remarkable humanitarian campaign, in which Mortenson has dedicated his life to promote education and literacy, especially for girls, in remote, volatile regions of Pakistan and Afghanistan.
TIME Magazine has selected, ‘Three Cups of Tea: One Man’s Mission To Fight Terrorism and Build Nations…One School At A Time.
Mortenson has dedicated his life to establish 58 schools in remote villages of the Karakoram, Pamir and Hindu Kush, which educate over 24,000 children.
‘Three Cups of Tea’, a New York Times best-seller in March 2006,

The light of the peak is superb and displays much power. The rugged foreground and its darkness contrast so well with the background.
