Make A Difference
October 17, 2009

Make a difference - as the name suggests, means instilling a change. Education is not yet considered a fundamental right in India. I still ruminate over days when I struggled to achieve excellence in education. Make a difference helps people like me who have dearth of opportunities to explore one's potential. To ensure that the youth understand the unexplored segment of the nation, I began with make a difference in Delhi. After 8 months in Delhi, the shelter home authorities have expressed gratiutde towards our team of volunteers for taking the first step towards educational liberty. Make a difference is undoubtedly the largest and most committed youth network of India. As Agha Khan states, In a world that is very rich, there are many who are very poor. MAD is about reaching these poor and help them achieve development in its true meaning. It is a change brought by the youth of today for the youth of tomorrow.
