"Three Cups of Tea" by Greg Mortensen combines extreme athleticism...(climbing the Himalaya mountains ...) with passionate idealism.. " Mortensen pulled together the most overachieving and most underqualified staff of the world" to construct his school and teach the children of Pakistan
and Afghanistan who lived in his village.
There are many surprises: a local leader Changazi decides to move all of the school supplies to his own village of Korphe. He claimed that Skardu was "too dirty!"This village was a long hike (114 kilometers) from his village; and yet Mortensen has little choice but to reclaim his goods there.
