Review for Central Asia Institute, Bozeman, MT, USA
To dedicate one's life to serving the most remote areas of the world is a testimony to that person's love of others. We have lived in Asia and the Middle East and have witnessed the need of those who are denied an education because they must devote their lives to working and to keeping their families alive. After reading "Three Cups of Tea" we were amazed at the love and dedication that Mr Mortensen and his colleagues have for those who live in the most remote parts of our world. Education is more than "reading and writing and arithmetic", it is the essential base of learning and achieving goals, of realizing that those goals can be met, and that there are more goals that will be met in the future. Learning is essential to peace and prosperity in one's family, one's town, one's country, and the world. Central Asia Institute not only builds schools, their teachers build their pupils' strength to move forward, and to dream of and achieve the goals that once seemed unattainable. As a teacher, I know that Central Asia Institute is a leader and an example for all of us.
