Maggie Doyne is an American philanthropist who has built a children's home, women's center and school in Surkhet, Nepal. Traveling outside the United States for the first time after graduating high school, Maggie wandered into Nepal and faced horrors she never imagined: children orphaned by Nepal's civil war left to fend for themselves. Only 19 years old, Maggie felt compelled to act. She used babysitting money and funds raised in her community to begin a home for orphaned children in war-ravaged Nepal. Today, Maggie (now 31) is CEO of BlinkNow Foundation and mom to over 50 children. In 2010, she opened a school for Nepal's most impoverished children. The school now serves 420 students and is rated top in the region. She was honored as a Forbes "Top 30 under 30" Social Entrepreneur and by the Dalai Lama as an Unsung Hero of Compassion.
