We are MaD – Making a Difference for Good! – a community based non profit organization registered as a charity in Cambodia.
We work in PARTNERSHIP with rural communities with the primary aim of EMPOWERING individuals, families and villages with the knowledge and resources they need to build themselves a SUSTAINABLE future free from poverty.
Our work is focused in the Siem Reap Province in the North West of Cambodia, near the legendary temple of Angkor Wat. You can see where we work on the map below (if viewed up close, best to use the “satellite” view!).
Despite decades of war, genocide and widespread poverty, a big welcoming smile is never far away in this young nation, where more than half the population is under 20 years of age. Every member of the MaD family is dedicated to helping the people of Cambodia, and we focus our efforts on two main charitable programs:
- Rural Community Development Program :: working in partnership with rural communities on the household level, helping to provide access to clean water, hygienic sanitation facilities and safe residential housing.
- Children’s Welfare Program :: includes child care, English language tuition, and a mobile health and hygiene clinic offering regular checkups, medical treatments and educational services at local schools and children’s centres.
We also undertake a range of activities to help raise funds, support and awareness for our charitable work, which include:
- vMaD International Volunteer Program :: the volunteer recruitment arm of MaD – vMaD recruits volunteers to work with MaD in Cambodia. 100% of profits support our charitable projects – and many volunteers continue to support MaD long after their placement comes to an end.
- MaD Tuk Tuk Challenge :: organised by MaD Adventures Inc., the MaD Tuk Tuk Challenge involves teams from around the World driving across Cambodia on pimped up Tuk Tuks! All profit’s support MaD’s charitable work.
We adhere to professional business processes, which ensure that we are an efficient and effective organization offering donors and supporters unparalleled value for money, and an excellent level of service to the communities with whom we work.
