Charting Impact

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?

What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?

How will they know if they are making progress?

What have and haven't they accomplished so far?

We aim to identify areas of vulnerability for people living in extreme poverty and assist in creating opportunities in those areas.

We want to remove the obstacles that prevent those living in extreme poverty from an opportunity to move above the poverty line. As people are able to provide for themselves and their families, it helps to protect them from people that would seek to exploit them. An example would be the lack of educational opportunities that many living in extreme poverty face. We work to remove the obstacles that prevent children from attending school and remaining in school through high school graduation. We do this by providing school uniforms, supplies, transportation, etc.

Today, Go MAD operates 3 preschools, 4 medical clinics for children, a feeding program, 4 English language schools, 2 job training facilities, a safe house and more. We continue to learn and seek out areas of vulnerability and move to work in those areas.

One person at a time. This is what we talk about all the time, because it is true. There is no quick or sweeping fix. As we see advancements like in one of the villages we work were only 14 people had ever graduated high school and now there are more than 140 students currently attending high school, we know we are making progress.

We have seen improvements in the number of children in school, in children's health (which leads to more being in school), in people with jobs and maybe most importantly in their outlooks towards the future. Attitude about the future is one of the most important, and most difficult to quantify aspects of working with those living in extreme poverty. As those we work with see others succeeding, there is greater effort put forth knowing they have an opportunity for success. Hope is a powerful force.
