Change Brings Change

There’s an old African proverb that best-selling author Greg Mortenson, NC State’s 2009 convocation speaker, often quotes as the driving force behind his humanitarian efforts in Afghanistan and Pakistan: If you educate a boy, you educate an individual – if you educate a girl, you educate a community. It's a mindset shared by a group of NC State students who have implemented Mortenson's Pennies for Peace program on our campus in hopes of helping bring a shared philosophy of equality in education to children halfway around the world.
