"Students at Ebenezer Community School studied Computer Science as a subject, but only theoretically. These students studied without the experience of working on a computer or a laptop. MDIS’s generous donation of six laptops filled our students with excitement. The learning has become complete in this subject with theoretical and practical knowledge."

"For the first 8 years of my life I lived on the streets of Delhi with my parents. When they both died I was adopted by my Canadian parents and enrolled at MDIS. I had never been to a school before and now I'm in 7th grade and through the nurturing and care of my teachers and parents over the years, I have caught up with my peers and looking forward to high school! I am so grateful for the opportunity God has given me through MDIS."
