It emphasizes on improving communicative English and self confidence by combining interactive learning tools and innovative teaching techniques. It is Nashik’s fastest growing youth network. A platform for the youth to do their bit for the society. I Make A Difference (iMAD) is a youth organization and they empower the kids by teaching spoken English, maths, science and conducting various workshops, competition, experiments, field visits, etc.
iMAD started its journey on 21st July 2010 at an ashram near Anjineri, Nashik. Since then it has provided free education to around 400 kids with the help of 120 volunteers. They have been working with great dedication and hard work since the past 4 years and have earned the reputation to be a result oriented organization. They work on every Sunday from 10-12 noon for 8 months every year.
iCOMP is a software developed by the team at iMAD for helping kids understand, explore & learn various subjects in an interactive way. They aim to harvest the power of curiosity and encourage kids to discuss within themselves and together try to understand the concepts. They are carrying out the installation in two phase. Phase one is to gain a deeper understanding of how kids reach to such an approach and what key points affect the entire process. One of the monitoring systems is by installing a Log counter in the computer that helps understand how much time a kid has spent on which topic. Also, the computer is available for kids use 24×7, of course with the windows disabled.
