I've come to know about MAD through my friends who are a part of it. MAD is indeed doing a noble task by spreading the light of knowledge to the less privileged, who forms the majority of our country. The activities undertaken by MAD has motivated me to participate in whatever way i can. I would encourage you to lend a hand in its endeavour to mould the future generation of India.

The representatives of M.A.D had come to our college,this is when we had got to know of this organization and its work.many of us were interested to be a part of such work but I coudn't go for it due to my coaching classes on the same days when i would have to spend time for this.But I was happy seeing my friends enthusiastically join it.I had always been interested to see what they were getting to do and so stumbled upon such a chance last month.I went to this orphanage with my friend where she was taking some classes for them.It was shocking to see how these kids were staying in that small place with so less facilities and still had lovely innocent smiles across their faces.The organization is helping them get ready for the battle outside when they grow up to fight for themselves.The approach,the planned out course structure and the dedication of the members of the organization has enthralled me.I would be happy to be of any help to the organization for the efforts it is putting in.Cheers th the whole M.A.D team.You really are making a great deal of difference to a lot of lives.Keep going.!!

An organization working for a social cause in a very organized and well defined framework. The methodology followed here better serves the students.

Young kids helping younger kids.. it's a great initiative. Unlike other places where affluent kids are forced to help others, MAD was started by the kids themselves

I heard about MAD from my friend who works as a volunteer in this organisation. Basically it is a group of volunteers teaching English to kids in orphanages. Most of the volunteers are young professionals and students. The first thing that came to my mind when I heard about MAD was the much used but hardly practised proverb ‘Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime’. Unlike most of us who donate money to charity these young people are giving something more precious and lasting like education. Apart from teaching kids get role models and the opportunity to interact with people who have a different outlook towards learning. MAD has brought a big change in my friend’s life. Working with kids has made her appreciate the things which she had taken for granted. Both the volunteers and children are benefitting from this initiative. There are so many problems facing our world. Environmental changes to food scarcity the list is endless. We need to find creative ways to find solution to these problems. I think MAD has found such a solution.

I have known MAD for about an year.The effort that the organisation puts in is proof of commitment, this only goes on to prove how important that the underprivileged kids are. There are no compromises in the quality of education provided. The volunteers work against odds such as emotional or psychological issues. I wish & hope you jump all hurdles & succeed your goals.
