Make a Difference(or MAD) is an NGO of young volunteers working to providing quality education to many unprivileged children. MAD began five years ago in Cochin. In a few years, we have spread to over eighteen cites in India and teach over 2500 children. We provide an easy platform for college students and young professionals to reach out and make a difference.
A team of MAD volunteers have been cycling the whole of south India to spread awareness for this cause. This “Tour De Difference” started at Mangalore, went on to cover 12 cities covering 4240 kilometers in the process, in the months of August and September. The 12 cities they visited are Mangalore, Mumbai, Pune, Hyderabad, Vijayawada, Chennai, Vellore, Bangalore, Mysore, Coimbatore, Thiruvananthapuram and Cochin.
The objectives of the trip are:
- 1. Raising Rs. 100 for every kilometer the cyclists cover, and thereby meet the costs incurred by the Mangalore chapter of MAD on Cambridge syllabus textbooks for the 300 children under its wings.
- 2. To promote Make A Difference and it’s project and to stress the importance of education to the future of our country.
They’ll reach Cochin on 18th September. A few MAD volunteers will be cycling with them during the last streach. From Vytilla to Oberon Mall. If anyone is interested in helping out in this process, you can cycle with them in this streach. They’ll start from Vytilla at 4 PM on Sunday go to Menaka and then to Oberon Mall. Any interested person is encouraged to join them for any distance(even if you can’t cycle the whole distance, don’t let that stop you).
