23 Year Old American Girl is Living Her Dream
It’s not unusual for high school grads to take a “gap” year between High School and college to “find” themselves. Maggie Doyne decided to do that, in 2005, at age 18. She began to backpack her way around the world. She found herself in a remote village in Nepal, where she felt a deep sense of belonging – a sense of home. The sight of so many working children, many of them orphans, deeply concerned her. She offered to sponsor the education of one little girl. She soon realized that she could easily sponsor 5 even 10 more kids with just a few dollars. In fact, it was within her reach to build a home for these children, who had no one to take care of them, if she wanted to.
In the past 5 years, Maggie has built a home for 35 orphaned children. Beginning with the $5,000 that she’d saved from babysitting back in New Jersey, she raised enough money to build an orphanage, and a primary school to educate over 230 more. She tells her story in this video, and shares her dream of what she wants to achieve in the next few years.
