Quality education and care for vulnerable children

Quality Education for All

Breaking the Cycle of Poverty

“Almost 65 million adolescents are without access to a secondary education.”

- Global Citizen

Without your help, vulnerable children will remain in poverty. Infrastructure, medical care and job growth within their developing countries will never improve. Top engineers, doctors and economists will never emerge. The good news is, you can change their futures by getting involved with us today!

Our Mission

Quality Education

Our mission is to provide quality education to vulnerable children and youth through scholarships, school improvement and career training programs.

Our difference: Numerous nonprofits in the world have missions to help children which operate like businesses, helping kids survive with basic care and a primary education but not the opportunity to break the cycle of poverty in their lives. Make A Difference (MAD) Now is a registered 501c(3) nonprofit that has taken a unique path. Instead of being focused on a high quantity of children with basic care, we provide quality education and care to a smaller number of youth all the way to college. The result has been tremendous. The children we help are thriving! As a case study, close to 70% of students in Tanzania don’t make it past primary school. Yet, 100% of our students have graduated from primary school. All are either in secondary school or in college working on their careers. They come from households making on average $30 a month and now have the earning potential of $1,000 or more per month.
