"Central Asia Institute (CAI) is a registered 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization, started in 1996. Initial funds to establish Central Asia Institute were provided by Dr. Jean Hoerni, a Swiss physicist, one of the pioneers of the Silicon valley microchip industry."

History of the Central Asia Institute

Cover of the book:  Three Cups of Tea

"Greg Mortenson is the co-founder of the Central Asia Institute.
He has dedicated the last 12 years of his life to creating
53 schools that have educated over 20 thousand children
in the remote mountain areas of Afghanistan and Pakistan
Three Cups of Tea is a collaboration with Award-winning
journalist David Oliver Relin on Mortenson's unforgettable
adventure and the inspiring true story of how one man really
is changing the world—one school at a time."

“Three Cups of Tea is one of the most remarkable adventure stories of our time. Greg Mortenson’s dangerous and difficult quest to build schools in the wildest parts of Pakistan and Afghanistan is not only a thrilling read, it’s proof that one ordinary person, with the right combination of character and determination,
really can change the world.” —Tom Brokaw
