Mountain to Mountain- international social change

This is an organization that my friend founded. She is currently in Afghanistan doing work for the project. She has had the opportunity to meet many very interesting people and has been reporting her experiences at the following site. All of the latest posts are her's. I thought you might find this to be an interesting organization working for change!

Education is the way forward. Be it school building, teacher training, literacy, cultural preservation, healthcare best practices, hygiene and sanitation, or greening initiatives – it is critical to the sustainability of communities in remote mountain areas around the world.

Mountain to Mountain was founded to create opportunity and venues for education in remote and impoverished areas of the world. Built upon the vision of uniting like-minded mountain communities with a single cause, Mountain to Mountain creates global connections between cultures…connecting communities and cultures in order to inspire participation and donations at home, and further the understanding of those we aim to empower through education.

Focus is put on projects that create venues and equip communities to promote sustainable education from within. Working with partners and local NGO’s that work from within the communities rather than dictating from afar - communities pledge their time, resources, and sweat equity, ensuring viable and sustainable projects for generations to come.
