On top of living in a war zone, women and children in Afghanistan struggle with getting decent health care and an education. Well, a small non-profit in Breckenridge-- called Mountain 2 Mountain-- is working to change that. Their latest project is a school for deaf children in Kabul. The group's founder is Shannon Galpin. She sold her house, moved to a small apartment, and kept her day job to start this... and pretty much everyone on staff is a volunteer. Galpin spoke with Ryan Warner.
