How Gloria is making her dream a reality
Gloria, 27, India
When Gloria and her friends visited a children’s centre in Kerala, India, they were moved by the children’s pleas for books instead of toys.
It was shocking to see what little skills and tools were being provided to children who had no other opportunities for education.
Gloria and her team banded together to set up a library and hold English classes at that very centre. Then their social passion grew to form the social enterprise Make A Difference [MAD], of which she is now managing director.
The project is dedicated to providing quality education to orphans and other underprivileged children through a network of 900 youth volunteers. It also runs mentoring programmes, career placement programmes as well as education and innovation projects across India.
Thanks to Gloria and the passion of their team, their dream of a world where all children have equal opportunities is becoming a reality.
