CALDWELL, NJ - In observance of The Day of the Girl, Mount Saint Dominic Academy had the tremendous opportunity to video conference with Maggie Doyne, a 28-year-old American philanthropist who helped to develop an orphanage and school in the Kopila Valley of Nepal. Doyne has an inspiring story to share about the power in doing something to change the world and spoke to MSDA students about her amazing journey.
Appearing before the entire Mount student body via Skype on our large format screen in the Doris M. Byrne Performing Arts Center, Doyne was delighted to share her story and her children with The Mount assembly.
Sr. Fran Sullivan, Head of School, is so pleased and proud of the whole experience.
“Technology at MSDA has enabled us to not only see Ms. Doyne,
The assembled students were able to hear her story of travelling after high school to volunteer in Nepal. Doyne shared that she was compelled to do something to help the impoverished and started by sponsoring one child. MSDA students were introduced to some of her children and learned that her family has now grown to include 50 children. The session included a question and answer period about her thoughts and experience.
Doyne's story about the power in doing something to change the world
The Mount looks forward to having Doyne visit in the coming months to hear more about her efforts in coordinating her nonprofit organization, BlinkNow.
