Three Cups of Tea by Greg Mortenson, David Oliver Relin

The book tells the true story of a man who, after a failed attempt to climb K2, the world's second highest mountain, is taken in by the people of a small village in Pakistan. Touched by their kindness and noticing their lack of educational facilities, he promises to build them a school. The story follows his journey of fulfilling this promise, which expands into a mission to build schools, especially for girls, in remote regions of Pakistan and Afghanistan, despite numerous challenges, including financial struggles, cultural barriers and threats from the Taliban.
