No, am not admitting to being mad. I mean why admit to something you guys already know, right? Jokes apart, MAD stands for Make A Difference Organisation. Make A Difference is a youth volunteer network that works with underprivileged children in India. They are trying to empower these children with English, Computer knowledge and other necessary life skills to help them succeed in life and harness their true potential.
Right now, 800 Make A Difference volunteers teach close to 2500 kids in the Indian cities of Cochin, Pune, Delhi, Mumbai, Mangalore, Bangalore, Trivandrum, Goa, Hyderabad, Nagpur and Chennai.
You may have heard of the Annual Camp that Make A Difference (MAD) is organizing for the children from a few street shelters that MAD teaches in. The aim of the MAD Camp is to expose these children to sessions that will contribute to their personal development and would build confidence. Also, of course, to see these children having one of the best 4 days of their lives! And to achieve this, they’ve got a whole lot of events, activities and sessions lined up for them.
