Educate a Girl, Educate the World – LANTERNS

April-8th-MOSTE-Lanterns1MOSTE is honored to host, best selling author Greg Mortenson as the keynote speaker and featured honoree for our 10th Annual Lanterns Award Luncheon. Mortenson is the co-author of the New York Times Best Seller, Three Cups of Tea and the new book Stones into Schools: Promoting Peace with Books, Not Bombs, in Afghanistan and Pakistan. He is the co-founder of the Central Asia Institute which works to educate and build schools for girls in volatile regions of Pakistan and Afghanistan. Mortenson has established, or significantly supported, the construction and management of 131 schools in rural regions of Pakistan and Afghanistan. His schools provide education to 58,000 children, with an emphasis on teaching the 44,000 girls in attendance. “If you educate a boy,” says Mortenson, “you educate an individual, but if you educate a girl, you educate a community.” Mortenson recently donated over 100 copies of his inspirational book to the MOSTE mentees.

Mr. Mortenson has also agreed to participate in a second event to benefit MOSTE, An Evening with Greg Moretenson. Taking place at LA’s hottest new venue, LA Live’s Grammy Museum, Mr. Mortenson will interact with a intimate crowd, shaking hands, signing books and sharing his stories.
