North Dakota Woman Changing Lives Across the Globe

Posted: Updated:
A woman from North Dakota is making a big impact on the other side of the world. Protect, Educate and Empower-that's what Deb Dawson from Fargo is  doing for orphaned girls in Uganda through her school African Soul American Heart. 

Dawson was in Bismarck today to spread the word about the foundation and give updates on the latest student developments. About 40 people attended the luncheon at the Radisson, and Dawson says she's hoping to inspire others to make a difference. 
"I Have seen children starving. I have seen people with leprosy," says Dawson. "I have seen blind people with no access to care and  these things we're changing while I was there the clinic in our village brought in eye surgeons that did cataracts the men with leprosy was being treated for his disease just miracles happening."
