I am M.A.D. (Making a Difference) is a volunteer organization established in 2009. Our major project is the M.A.D. CAMP - a 3 day community camp for children ages 10-12 years old.
During the camp, the kids will be taught values, citizenship, and the importance of education. This will be facilitated by our volunteers together with their school teachers and parents.
Our target is to raise Sixty Four Thousand Pesos (PHP 64,000.00) for all 64 children of Murok Elementary School. The 1 thousand pesos budget per kid will provide them with a school bag, raincoat, school supplies, and a Christmas gift.
Local M.A.D. volunteers will continue to monitor the kids until the end of the school year and present medals to those who have improved since day 1.Since the establishment of this SEC-registered organization, we have raised a total of 1.3million pesos in donations, sponsored 1420+ children, mobilized 282+ volunteers nationwide, and gone to 32+ areas around the Philippines.
I AM M.A.D. has also been awarded the:
- 2016 Ten Accomplished Youth Organizations from the National Youth Commission, TAYO Foundation, and Coca-Cola Foundation;
- 2016 CSR Youth Awards for Community Service, Sustainability, and Responsible Citizenship from the Benita and Catalino Yap Foundation;
