At M.A.D.E we encourage active citizenship and demonstrate to students that people participate in democracy in a variety of ways.

Giving can be an important action for those wanting to create a more equal society, so we have created the Giving It resource to look at which groups have less access to rights and public services than others and what communities can do to help.

Giving It was created in partnership with the Ruffin Falkiner Foundation (part of Australian Philanthropic Services Foundation); and the Asia Pacific Centre for Social Investment at the Centre for Social Impact, Swinburne University of Technology. It was created in collaboration with Education Services Australia with advice from Philanthropy Australia.
