Jerene Mortenson and Central Asia Institute

Hushe School, a school I visited with my local friend Little Karim in 2007. Hushe school was one of the early schools built by Central Asia Institute.
I had the pleasure of meeting and introducing Jerene Mortenson for a UAA Social Work Department backed presentation this week. Jerene is a humanitarian and mother of Greg Mortenson, author of Three Cups of Tea and Stones into Schools. I thought I might take the opportunity to share the links for Central Asia Institute and Pennies for Peace since I have greatly loved the time I have spent with the people of Pakistan and the work Central Asia Institute is doing is extremely inspirational. May you also be inspired. Tom Brokaw donated 100 bucks to the cause back in the 1990s...maybe you can donate 101!
