SOCIAL AW ARENESS @ CAMPAIGNS BACKATHON The Backathon is a one of a kind mass awareness campaign created by MAD to highlight the issue of illiteracy. Every year on the 8th of September our volunteers across the country celebrate World Literacy day by getting on to the streets of their city and walking backwards in masses, representing our effort towards pushing back illiteracy in India. Our last Backathon had more than 3000 volunteers participate across 18 cities.
MAD WEEK MAD week is a campaign we run annually from 1st - 6th November, the anniversary week of MAD's registration in 2006. Its signature campaign is called 'Happiness is contagious' where our volunteers across the country step out into their community and show their gratitude to people who are least appreciated such as the traffic police, labourers, security guards and street vendors through acts of kindness.
