Make A Difference (MAD) was established to help children rise out of poverty and become leaders within their countries.
MAD's mission is to support quality educational opportunities for vulnerable children and youth in developing countries.
Why We Help Tanzania
Tanzania's economy is among the bottom 10 percent of the world. Over 40 percent of the people who live in Tanzania are aged between 0-14 years old. A high risk of diseases exists in the country along with the poverty situation which leads to Tanzania having a very young life expectancy rate and an infant mortality rate of 66.93 deaths/1000 live births. There are numerous schools in Tanzania. However, 75% of the children whom attend primary government school don't go on to secondary school. They are taught in Swahili but their entrance exams for secondary school are in English. In order to make sure that more children graduate from primary to secondary school, MAD sends children to schools which teach English so that they may pass their exams and continue on to secondary school.
Why We Help India
India is now the world's tenth most productive industrialized country and the second-largest exporter of computer software. Despite this, nearly a third of the world's poorest people are Indian and there are still around 350 million people below the poverty line. While urban India may be getting richer, over 70% of India's population live in villages and the gap between urban and rural life is getting wider. Many people in the villages remain illiterate and impoverished. MAD is making sure children in the villages become literate and receive quality schooling.
Why We Are Different
We send the children we help to the BEST schools in the regions they come from.
We make sure the children have private tutoring so that they may improve their understanding of their studies.
We offer nutritional meals that include protein, calcium, vegetables, fruits and daily vitamins.
We provide sports therapy programs for the children including swimming, tennis and horseback riding.
We have weekly individualized counseling sessions for the children so that they may heal from their pasts.
Make A Difference is recruiting volunteers/interns to join our team in the beautiful region of Kilimanjaro, Tanzania as well as around the world to help orphaned and vulnerable children rise out of poverty. MAD gives hard working vulnerable students with limited economic resournces access to quality educational opportunities so they may help themselves rise out of poverty.
