MAD is a great platform for people who genuinely want to Make A Difference. Deciding to go to MAD's recruitment drive was one of the best decisions I've made. The joy and satisfaction derived from teaching English to a bunch of enthusiastic kids is indescribable!

I had joined MAD about four months back with the primary intention of not viling away my weekends. I signed up as a teacher, and from past stories from friends joining "similar"NGOs i had the perception of this being another vague, blurred attempt at giving some quality time and talk to the kids. But what really appealed to me, here at MAD, is the system. It's a carefully planned out lead up to the responsibility of being a teacher to such brilliant young minds. :) And the learning never ends, for every issue considered menial in an everyday classroom, is picked up as a challenge, scrutinized and solved with perfection. And this MAD obsession with perfection is what keeps us going, what makes us better ourselves with every "menial" task that we take up. The organised procedure itself makes one motivated enough to stick with the cause for a really long time. It's new, it's fantastic, it's MAD!, and I'm loving it! :D

I joined MAD abt 4 months back and i must say more than making a difference in children's lives, it has made a difference in my life. Its a great opportunity for me to do a wee bit for the society that has given me so much that I am thankful for.

i joined MAD with the thought of doing something for the society and what better than to do for the children at risk. MAD works with kids, teaching them, encouraging them to dream. We bring them in touch with the million paths from which they can choose one for themselves and dream their destination. we provide them with the language which will bridge the current gap between their vast abilities and the opportunities the world has in store for them. MAD is about believing in your dreams and working towards achieving them. The MAD teachers have to pass through the recruitment where every MAD value is carefully checked. MAD aims and does Make A Difference. MAD taught me to think above myself, the happiness achieve teaching those kids, knowing they look up to me, and i am helping them becoming a better person is unparallelled , especially when i realize that i am learning in the process as well..MAD does all it says.. "Dont stop believing!!!" :)

I just joined MAD, and had the chance of being a part of one activity. MAD is the best place to do your bit for your people. MAD is much more than an organization. Its a big family, which I am fortunate to be a part of. It embeds this satisfying feeling inside you,which nothing else can give. It purely reflects that there is no joy better than the joy of giving, the joy of caring.

It was a first time experience. Being in class, but at the other end (teacher's end). I was little worried if I can deliver, but my students knew exactly what they want from the teacher. Playing games that enhance their learning skills to writing on the practice writing scripts, they did it all. They needed a mentor, some one who can guide them. My most amazing experience was the day I realized two of my student's hidden interests. One of them, wants to become an actor and another girl loves reading poems. They all are very bright and enthusiastic, they lack little confidence, thats exactly what MAD volunteers help them gain. We learn from our students, they are one of the most important part of our lives. Its been great three months, every sunday put to better use, more fun and lot of jumping around and dancing along with the books :) :)

Make a difference, according to me is a great organisation that not only works towards giving its kids a bright career by teaching them English but also by teaching them life skills. What's even better is that we at make a difference also bring to light the various careers that the kids could take up, opening a whole world of opportunities for them! so far this has been a great experience for me, there's always a whole lot of activities for the kids that teach them so much! Its amazing how the bond grows between us and the kids, which only makes us work harder to make our kids realize their dreams! Personally, I think make a difference is doing a great job with all the kids and it keeps getting better as an organisation!
