This organization has built hundreds of schools in Pakistan and Afghanistan for children who otherwise would have had no opportunity to better themselves and help improve their communities.

Incredible organization with amazing leadership, impact, focus. I've read both the books, heard its founder speak, and am starting this year to make an annual donation. I've also given his books to others. His way is so much better than going to war. I wish we were doing what he is doing everywhere we are using guns instead of diplomacy and time/money/goods to improve the status of people who have far less than we do.

Read the books: Three Cups of Tea and Stones into Schools! Our top military have read the books and learned a lot about community building among the Mujahideen and even the Taliban. One must sit down with the community leaders to make permanent progress. Support Greg and his dirty dozen, because the other NGO's and the corrupt governments in Afghanistan and Pakistan can't do the job.

This organization has really hit on the BEST way to reduce terrorism and improve the lives of people in poor areas -- it builds sustainable schools that educate girls. Girls stick with their community and build families and communities. Education allows democracies to grow and countries to prosper. Prosperous communities don't breed terrorists, they breed citizens.
