i got to know of MAD through a friend who was passionately committed to it. I was witness to the way MAD completely changed her life- gave her a purpose beyond the small concerns of an individual life and made her a part of something much larger. I have been associated with MAD in a very small way, but i see how the commitment of a few people have made a huge difference in the life of so many young children. Just by giving these kids an opportunity, just by believing in them MAD has opened a whole new world for them. To me MAD is special because every individual associated with it, genuinely cares about the kids MAD supports. To the volunteers for MAD, this is not a job, this is not a step to something higher. It is what defines them.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
young enthusiastic people who believed in their power to change the world
