The name of this nonprofit says it all: expanding lives is what happens not only to the girls who come over from Niger as part of the educational program, but also to the people who volunteer. We hear from families that they see the world through new eyes after hosting girls, and high school students who work with us sometimes change their majors as a result. It's fun work with great, immediate outcomes.
