Greg Mortenson Goes to Nuristan

by Joshua Foust on 11/16/2008 · 1 comment

According to this video by Outside Magazine, Greg Mortenson is expanding his build-a-school program to Kunar, Nuristan, and Panjshir. Outside features an extended look at his post-Three Cups of Tea activities in the December, 2008 issue. It’s worth a read.

As I’m sure he is to many of you, he is a hero to me. The Central Asia Institute is always worthy of giving—among the charities with which I am familiar, it offers exceptional bang for the buck. My gushing review of his book is here.

This is great news.
Hard work in these areas, but a great news nonetheless.
