Madad (Society for Mobilisation of Action for Dalit Advocacy and Development) is a non-political, non-religious social organization working in the districts of Buxar, Jamui and Patna in the state of Bihar. In 2009, it was registered under the Society's Act of 1860. The organisation envisions a society where people live with equal freedom, dignity and independence. Madad regards women and Dalits as special target groups as they are the most disadvantaged sections of the society, and works towards their development through supporting advocacy training, capacity building and awareness generation. Madad, since its genesis in 2007, has played a key role in strengthening the village communities and making them self-sustainable.
