Greg Mortenson

 Greg Mortenson is an American humanitarian, professional speaker, writer, and former mountaineer. He is a co-founder and former executive director of the non-profit Central Asia Institute and the founder of the educational charity Pennies for Peace.

Since 1993, he has been working in Pakistan, and later in Afghanistan and Tajikistan to promote education, and build schools, especially for girls.

Mortenson is the co-author of The New York Times Bestsellers, Three Cups of Tea, which stayed on the New York Times bestseller list for 220 weeks, and the author of Stones into Schools: Promoting Peace with Books, Not Bombs, in Afghanistan and Pakistan.

In April 2011, CBS 60 Minutes and author Jon Krakauer accused Mortenson of fabrication in his non-fiction books and of financial improprieties at his charity, Central Asia Institute. After a one year investigation by Montana Attorney General, Steve Bullock, Mortsenson was cleared of the allegations, and no charges of fraud or criminal activity were filed. The Attorney General sought restitution for book royalties, speaking and travel fees, promotional costs, and inappropriate personal bills Mortenson charged to the CAI. He was ordered to reinstate $1 million to the charity, including credits for payments made.
