Review for Make A Difference, Karnataka, , India

Rating: 5 stars  

Had always wanted to make a difference to a person/society/country at the "Grassroot" level. But I was not able to figure out how that can be done. Monetary help to an individual or for a cause would certainly help, but I was not in a position to make a substantial donation for the same. That is when i came across MAD. MAD aims at invigorating the most essential element of a person - that of being independent through education. And that most comforting factor was the group was formed by peers with a passion. And they were open to suggestions being themselves exploring various options at imparting education, one that will be handy for kids in future. The course designed is very much different from the education methods used upon us. Being kids, they would always love to have fun. Thats what MADster does - learning through fun. May sound cliched but i have no other words to describe what we do. It gives immense pleasure to know how eagerly kids await for those 2 hours we spend with them. Their eagerness to learn, communicate with us inspires you all the more to immerse yourself at working this grassroot level. Though we are all young - both by age and experience in this field, we are passionate and confident that in the long term, these kids will definitely put to good use what we impart to them today.

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

absolutely passionate and perfectly committed to what they were aiming to achieve. Being an effort that would bear results only in the long term, the dedication and enthusiasm shown was unseen by me before in my life.

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

for sure, expand on to more cities. Explore options of facilitating the methods of teaching currently being used.
