Make A Difference is a platform that activates communities to empower children pursue their passion. To provide children at risk a positive eco-system that will help them unleash their potential.
60% of a child's academic achievement is determined by factors such as poverty, homelessness, lack of jobs and absent parents. Parents provide emotional support, exposure to the world, motivation and inspiration and follow-up on skills-generation. Children in the centers we teach at do not get that one-on-one attention and they tend to fall behind their peers because of emotional instability, disillusionment about future and lower academic performance.
The solution lies in empowering the community and providing a platform to implement solutions that create a positive ecosystem for children at risk. Currently we run programs that improve their communicative English, maximize career awareness and instill reading habits. MAD recruits young volunteers as role models who provide these children with one on one attention and support, dreams to aspire to, life skills and academic support. This impacts 60% of a child's academic achievement.
Children at the centers we work with are among the weakest sections of the society. The combination of MAD's projects will enable over 5000 children across shelter homes in 40 cities in India to pursue what they want to be when they grow up, irrespective of where they grew up, or what their financial background is. Through our programmes, we believe every MAD child will be able to identify, focus on, and take up the professions that they want to. We are looking at over 25000 children.
