Inspired by the #1 New York Times bestseller, Three Cups of Tea: One Man’s Mission To Promote Peace…One School At A Time, the Dalai Mamas dedicate themselves to supporting the Central Asia Institute, the non-profit founded by Greg Mortenson, former mountaineer turned humanitarian. He found a way to educate girls in the most remote mountainous areas of Afghanistan and Pakistan. Portland writer David Oliver Relin co-authored the book that follows Mortenson’s harrowing adventures working with local tribes to get secular schools built in the Taliban’s back yard.
