the m.a.d. school

changing the course of people’s lives

the m.a.d. school

Welcome to the m.a.d. school, an initiative of m.a.d.woman - making a difference, which incorporates a combination of paid programs and free downloadable community resources. This includes free resources to provide much-needed support for adult literacy.

One of the core initiatives we are working on is the m.a.d. school - literacy library. In Australia, 44% of adults don’t have the literacy levels required to participate fully in the community. The impact can be far-reaching, including affecting health, employment and social circumstances. There are also many instance of intergenerational literacy issues.

The aim of the m.a.d. school is to reduce barriers to access for the likes of remote, regional and disadvantaged people.
