#NeverTooLate:
The Campaign

Aimed at driving social awareness of the realities and needs of over 35 million children in need of care and protection in India, #NeverTooLate is our first big public impact campaign. We created a new kind of interactive impact media specially for this campaign, to allow you to experience how taking action can transform a life!

Campaign Vision

#NeverTooLate was conceptualised to impact social outcomes through a national media based awareness campaign focused on children in need of urgent care and protection.

Our dream was to create a campaign that would enable our society to care more, and drive every veiwer to want to know more about the problem. This, hopefully, will lead to an intrinsic need to do more for vulnerable children in India.

Design and Innovation

Build Empathy

The key driver that we wanted to focus on is empathy and the lack of it.

Enable Interaction

The choices a user makes are the moments that matter. And they make all the difference.

The Essence of MAD

The messaging and tone tied the campaign back strongly to MAD’s vision to transform outcomes.

Built to Share

The campaign was built to be socially evocative and has the potential to change perspectives.

In the timeline depicting the life of ‘Bindiya’, a child in need of care and protection, there are points where the viewer can intervene through a physical gesture on their devices. This results in a positive change in the journey of the child. The journeys will change based on the point at which a user has intervened. The earlier the user intervenes, the lesser will be the struggle faced by the child.

Pioneering Projects

DXC Technology also partnered with us on 4 other pioneering projects. The first two focused on data evaluation; from backend data analytics to help MAD get real time visibility of operations across our 23 city footprint, to a comprehensive impact evaluation of our programmes aimed at helping us build better interventions. The second two focused on generating sector value through the first ever adult outcomes research carried out for children in shelters, and by capturing true life stories of young adults who grew up in need of care and protection to help drive change by bringing home the human realities beyond data.

Measure: Impact Evaluation

NUMBERS THAT MATTER

One of the most critical initiatives in the suite of impact projects funded by DXC Technology, an external Impact Evaluation program is mission critical in us knowing how we can better our interventions every day. In partnership with CSSL, we are setting up robust impact evaluation systems that gives us data and insights on our work with CNCP.

Research: Problem Definition

INVALUABLE INSIGHTS. TANGIBLE IMPACT.

Our interventions are designed on the basis of incisive insights we glean from a rigorous feedback loop of qualitative research about the life outcomes of adults who have had an institutionalised childhood. Funded by DXC Technology, this one of a kind research project will help us evolve our programmes to serve CNCP for years to come!

Analytics: Data for Change

DATA AND TECHNOLOGY FOR IMPACT

In partnership with SocialCops, we are leveraging data and analytics to have granular oversight over everything MAD. We are tracking key data points like class performance, volunteer retention, fundraising efficacy, all to build predictive models that take us into the future of human outcome transformation!

STORIES: CHILDREN OF INDIA

The Children of India Project is our attempt to give a voice to a few of the millions of children in need of urgent care and protection. A slice of an institutionalised life, these are stores of children and youth from shelters of ages from 12 to 28 talking about their lives, in their own words.
