It differentiates itself by providing a long-term and committed engagement, every week, that enables impactful transformation in attitude, value and overall personality of the kids.

IMAD was certainly one of my most significant leadership experiences, working with underprivileged kids at the age of 18. Although I was very young and inexperienced, I was fearless and had an eagerness to serve the society, to make a difference. I clearly defined individual roles within the team and facilitated them to bond with each other. It was here that I realized the importance of personal relationships, escalations, incentivizing and prioritizing. I learnt the art to draw a road map in an unstructured atmosphere, quick decision-making and taking complete ownership of your decisions taken.
