Maya Ajmera is among the ordinary people who are working to make a difference for others. She is the founder of the Global Fund for Children, a non-profit that gives small grants to grassroots organizations around the world that provide education, health care and shelter to poor children.

The young philanthropist believes that small amounts of money can go a long way. Grants have been as low as $3,000. About $11 million has been donated to date.
