One School at a time..

"When it is dark enough, you can see the stars"

This is the opening quote of a book that I recently read - "Three Cups of Tea". It is a story of an American mountaineer who goes back to the high mountains of Pakistan with a different objective this time - to build a school. He goes on to build several of them.  It is inspiring to note how one man can make a significant contribution to education, no less female education in this rugged terrain, which is splendidly beautiful in some respects and harsh and brutal in others.
