This NGO is driving the youth towards the right direction M.A.D truly stands up to its name MAKE A DIFFERENCE. I have never met people who are so much dedicated towards the cause and just to make a note here i also met so people in the beginning who just joined for the heck of it but now are one of the most active and dedicated members of M.A.D , this is how MAD not only transforms its students but also its volunteers.
Me who hated to wake up early on sunday morning early wait for it so that I can go meet MADsters and teach those lovely kids rise up expectations make my classes amazing .
This non profit is profiting alot of lives in 'N' number of way possible

Hats off. Proud to be a MADster.

M.A.D stands up for its name. It made a difference in lives of many kids..and it is even bringing up change in lives of many more kids. Changes the perspective of kids..it changes the way they see life..of all..it gives parental support to kids which can't be done so easily. Playing role of parent in a kids life isn't so easy and this is definitely a non-profit organization. Volunteers working there expect nothing..but the satisfaction one can get through this organization is amazing.. a volunteer or person who is closely related with M.A.D knows what life is like.. it takes a lot of courage and kind heart to be a M.A.D volunteer..its not as easy as we see it. Its the dedication of every volunteer what makes up M.A.D. THUMBS UP AND HATS OFF FOR M.A.D . love this organization and work a lot. Life changing experience.

M.A.D really lives up to it's name for making a difference,yes it really does..Happy memories and the many smiling faces that look up to me and adore me and love me at the same time..The strength of a family that makes me strive for perfection and at the end of a busy day the contentment that fills my heart.M.A.D has not only made a difference for 'them' or 'you',it has made a difference in me and that is what it's all about..!

For me MAD is not just a platform to give back to the community but an opportunity to hone my leadership skills and overall personality. There is just so much to learn from all the youngsters that surround you. The energy, ideas, zeal and commitment levels are overwhelming. And ofcourse...the best takeaway is the smiles on the faces of the kids you teach...AMAZING !!

Being a part of MAD has been my best experience so far! The joy that I get everytime i see a kid smile in my class is truely priceless. MAD has put a full stop to all my confusions about how I could do my part to those who are really special, but are in need. So, MAD has definitely made a difference in my life and is inspiring me to Make A Difference every day :)

Excellent team filled with lot of energy and motivation to make a social impact... the org. has enormously grown during the org. period of 6yrs with minimal resources... ample success stories achieved which have been recognized nationally & globally... good strategy moves set by senior management and they are always improvising... biggest plus of MAD, all contributions directly go to impact a child and their system is transparent.

MAD is a great platform for people who genuinely want to Make A Difference. Deciding to go to MAD's recruitment drive was one of the best decisions I've made. The joy and satisfaction derived from teaching English to a bunch of enthusiastic kids is indescribable!

I had joined MAD about four months back with the primary intention of not viling away my weekends. I signed up as a teacher, and from past stories from friends joining "similar"NGOs i had the perception of this being another vague, blurred attempt at giving some quality time and talk to the kids. But what really appealed to me, here at MAD, is the system. It's a carefully planned out lead up to the responsibility of being a teacher to such brilliant young minds. :) And the learning never ends, for every issue considered menial in an everyday classroom, is picked up as a challenge, scrutinized and solved with perfection. And this MAD obsession with perfection is what keeps us going, what makes us better ourselves with every "menial" task that we take up. The organised procedure itself makes one motivated enough to stick with the cause for a really long time. It's new, it's fantastic, it's MAD!, and I'm loving it! :D

I joined MAD abt 4 months back and i must say more than making a difference in children's lives, it has made a difference in my life. Its a great opportunity for me to do a wee bit for the society that has given me so much that I am thankful for.

i joined MAD with the thought of doing something for the society and what better than to do for the children at risk. MAD works with kids, teaching them, encouraging them to dream. We bring them in touch with the million paths from which they can choose one for themselves and dream their destination. we provide them with the language which will bridge the current gap between their vast abilities and the opportunities the world has in store for them. MAD is about believing in your dreams and working towards achieving them. The MAD teachers have to pass through the recruitment where every MAD value is carefully checked. MAD aims and does Make A Difference. MAD taught me to think above myself, the happiness achieve teaching those kids, knowing they look up to me, and i am helping them becoming a better person is unparallelled , especially when i realize that i am learning in the process as well..MAD does all it says.. "Dont stop believing!!!" :)

I just joined MAD, and had the chance of being a part of one activity. MAD is the best place to do your bit for your people. MAD is much more than an organization. Its a big family, which I am fortunate to be a part of. It embeds this satisfying feeling inside you,which nothing else can give. It purely reflects that there is no joy better than the joy of giving, the joy of caring.
