In 1993, Mortenson failed to reach the summit. As he descended, he got separated from his climbing party and ended up in the Pakistani village of Korphe, which nursed him back to health. As a thank-you, Mortenson promised to build the area a school, since all the village's children had was a dirt mesa with sticks for pens. (Greg Mortenson)
