Our Story

In our years of travels to different parts of the world, we have not had a feeling so intense for its people until we visited Bhutan. A country quite like no other, it saw us embark on a school building project for a remote rural school. Other projects followed and haven't stopped since.  

 

Our want to give back to the country that gave us so much emotionally is the inspiration behind MAD. - Make A Difference. 

MAD. is founded with the primary objective to help the less privileged, especially children, in Bhutan.  

While other charities focus on  broader social causes, MAD aims to touch lives at personal level. Providing aids to the needy, sponsoring orphaned children, gifting of basic education materials to schools are just some of the things we do to give back to the beautiful country. 

 

Our desire is to engage our guests with the people and their lives, and to create a positive social impact to the local communities by incorporating an element of charity during their visit.

 

With office presence in both Singapore and Bhutan, our trained and experienced guides will be available to help you with a customised itinerary.  Make A Difference with us and make that positive impact in supporting the local communities and projects for the less privileged.

Make Bhutan your next holiday destination and Make A Difference while doing that.
