Bhumi
October 20, 2009

As a MAD volunteer, I do hear a lot about Bhumi and their work and have interacted with it's volunteers countless times. Though I've never had the chance to get involved with Bhumi at Chennai itself, I'm hoping the opportunity will materialise soon enough. Cheers! :)

Make A Difference
October 7, 2009

I have been a M.A.D volunteer for about one and a half years now. I joined having a very vague idea of what they did. I didn't want to change the world, and I certainly didn't think I could teach all that well. But the people there and the kids you get to teach change you overtime. I learned a lot from the folds of MAD volunteers. The kids and volunteers both are like family to me, as is the case with lots of MAD volunteers. There are kids who passed out and still keep in touch with me. Talking with them and checking up on their progress makes my day. MAD is driven by the youth, and as such it runs on the inexhaustible resource of youth initiative. MAD harnesses this potential to address a valid social cause of plugging the holes in the education system that underprivileged children are exposed to. Now, not only do I want to change the world, I'm convinced that education is the most powerful tool to do so.
