NJ woman helps change lives for children in NepalPosted: Updated:
A New Jersey woman is making a difference in children's lives across the world.
Maggie Doyne decided to take a trip around the globe after she graduated high school. After meeting with a young girl in need, Doyne's plans to go to college changed.
She decided to move to Nepal, where she founded the BlinkNow Foundation in 2007. Her mission was to empower the youth of Nepal.
Doyne also helped build the Kopila Valley Children's Home, an organization that houses and educates those in poverty and orphans.
The organization is even getting recognition from the royal couple, but the New Jersey native says she's most proud of the impact it has had on the children.
"They're going to college now," Doyne says. "And they're really changing the world in their own way."
