A Sad Story of Loss of Integrity,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Three Cups of Deceit (Kindle Single) (Kindle Edition)
This a sad story about a man called Greg who started with the very best of intentions, but allowed himself to be seduced by money and whose integrity broke down. He has brought education and opportunity into the lives of many, for which the author gives due praise, but he has also apparently squandered donated funds on building schools in the wrong places, where they could not be supplied, or at any rate, have not been supplied, with teachers and equipment. He has obstinately refused to work with the government of Pakistan. I thought of Gregg and the Central Asia Foundation (he is no longer CEO, but still involved and drawing a large salary) as I listened to Malala Yousufzai, addressing the UN Youth Assembly on the subject of education for girls and boys, particularly in Pakistan and Afghanistan. The situation calls for cooperation between NGO's and governments and much targeted hard work. Jon Krakauer's book, together with the original Three Cups of Tea, gives an insight into why it has been so hard to make it happen.
