Display: World Peace Through Education

"You must be the change you wish to see in the world."
—Mahatma Gandhi

Find books on education, altruism, volunteering, and Pakistan & Afghanistan on the second floor bridge of the Library, between Circulation and Reference.

This display celebrates the upcoming presentation One Child at a Time: World Peace Through Education with retired school principal & founder of Tanzania's Moshe International School Jerene Mortenson, Ph. D.

The presentation will be held at the Grandview Heights High School Auditorium on Wednesday, September 23, at 7 pm, with a reception to follow.

Lost & nearly frozen, Jerene's son, Greg Mortenson, stumbled off K-2 (the world's second highest mountain) into a remote Pakistani village. Villagers saved his life, and Greg promised to build them a school.

Since 1993, Greg has built 88 schools in Pakistan and Afghanistan. Hear Jerene tell the story of Greg's mission to promote peace one school at a time, one child at a time.

Greg Mortenson's story is for readers of all ages, in the books Three Cups of Tea and Listen to the Wind.

This program is funded & presented by The Grandview Heights/Marble Cliff Education Foundation. Please contact the Foundation for more information.
