M.A.D stands up for its name. It made a difference in lives of many kids..and it is even bringing up change in lives of many more kids. Changes the perspective of kids..it changes the way they see life..of all..it gives parental support to kids which can't be done so easily. Playing role of parent in a kids life isn't so easy and this is definitely a non-profit organization. Volunteers working there expect nothing..but the satisfaction one can get through this organization is amazing.. a volunteer or person who is closely related with M.A.D knows what life is like.. it takes a lot of courage and kind heart to be a M.A.D volunteer..its not as easy as we see it. Its the dedication of every volunteer what makes up M.A.D. THUMBS UP AND HATS OFF FOR M.A.D . love this organization and work a lot. Life changing experience.

I was just having a casual chat with one of the hiring volunteers from mad and I was truly amazed at their hiring criteria for MAD teachers. It was not enough if you were an expert in a field, you had to be kind and understanding with a high score in patience.. I'm inspired by MAD! I am sure MAD is making a Difference indeed!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

everything about it

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

A bunch of pearls strung together. The best fit for any non profit org!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Make a remarkable difference to the abandoned kids

I came to know about this wonderfull yet different organiztion called MAD from my Colleague, Mr.Jithin C Nedumala. This organization was concieved by Jithin and two of his friends, which initiated with a humble begining. Unlike other college goers these guys used to devote their spare time and money in teachings and helping the little kids at orphanages in the locality. The organiztion took on lead with the active volunteering of other motivated youngsters who wanted to make a difference in the society. And thus the evolvement of 'MAD'. I really appreciate their efforts in bringing happiness in life of many orphan kids round the country, and I whole heartedly support this organization, their mission and their activities.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

one of their programme conducted annualy.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I like the way it is...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

when you help someone without any intention of profit, the smile and love they give back is lot more valuable than any thing in this world

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

They all are dedicated youngsters with a motive to make a difference in this society inspite of hindrance and troubles they are facing.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Change the lives of many more helpless kids round the world, maybe a better life, better education and thus a better world.

Ways to make it better...

I would have been a volunteer of this organization

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

They do have problem with funding

One thing I'd also say is that...

This is not a usual kind of organization. They work with the goal of improvising the helpless and needy. And they are doing it !

I have had the opportunity to interact with officials, volunteers and the students of the 'Make A Difference' family. I believe it is a great movement. It is the focus on education which took America ahead in the 20th century and I am sure emphasis on education can alter India significantly. The manner in which MAD has gone about this is very very professional - identifying a floating volunteer population who are really committed to the cause - the systems works very well. The volunteers are giving their time and knowledge for a cause, they are actually in the process of enabling the less privileged without looking for anything in return - to put in place a system like this and considering that this has been done by the young generation without any brand or money power backing them speaks volumes for MAD. The volunteers also benefit in the long run getting the opportunity to understand the social dynamics of the less privileged and get the big picture of the society clearer and better. The society at large also benefits considerably from this linkage between different socio-economic groups of youth as this would help the country and society move on an inclusive and peaceful development ahead. A great concept implemented in an excellent manner. Best wishes to 'MAD' Commander R Madhusoodanan, Corporate Trainer

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The commitment of the young generation - their willingness to serve the needy without looking for returns.
