Make A Difference
October 10, 2009

The Trivandrum branch of Make A Difference came into being in the first half of this year and I've been with it almost right from its inception. Nearly all the volunteers are college students and everything is done by them. A student myself, perhaps this is why I don't feel so out of place at MAD. We learn from each other, we learn with each other. I have been teaching at the SH Jyothi Bhavan at Nalanchira for the past four months. The eagerness of the girls to learn and the enthusiasm with which they welcome us humbles me every time. I think I'm becoming a better person because of them.

The Great!

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

the children I teach English to. Slowly but surely, they are gaining more confidence to speak the language.

More feedback

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

not "were" but ARE. The staff and the volunteers are the most dedicated people you'll find anywhere and are united in their goal to "Make a Difference"

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

start providing computer education to the children which is a prerequisite in this day and age.
