Make A Difference

It is a moment of immense pride for us Indians that a NGO has been nominated for the International Youth Social Entrepreneur Award, a prestigious award handed out by the Ashoka Group.

Make A Difference, a youth volunteer network, is the only Indian entry in this competition where 15 finalists have been chosen. 521 nominations from 60 odd countries have been cast and MAD is the only Indian entry.

It operates in three cities - Kochi, Pune and Chennai - with 321 volunteers educating over 1200 underpriveleged kids in English and computer skills. Such noble work deserves acknowledgement of the highest order.

So let's VOTE and Make A Difference.

Nice to see this recognition. I'm sure it will inspire them to grow nationally.

Its certainly enchanting to notice that the "young blood of this nation" is indeed young.
Cheers to the volunteers and every person involved in making this happen.....and glad that there is a way "we" can make this happen, by a vote that is truly deserving.
You have made a difference in your own way by spreading this....
