Metro Delhi International School (MDIS) was founded in 2002 by Paul and Pat Gillette who saw the need to provide Bible-based education to the children of cross-cultural workers serving in South Asia. Accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) and the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI), Metro Delhi International School pairs a strong academic emphasis with a foundation of Christian values. A biblical worldview permeates all of the school's courses, and the curriculum seeks not only to expand students' knowledge but to develop their character and ethical reasoning skills.
The mission of Metro Delhi International School is to provide affordable, Biblically-based education that equips national and international students with the knowledge, skills and character to pursue both a postsecondary education and their full potential. Its vision is to see students and graduates become servant leaders who will purposefully and positively influence the world.
One of the aims of the Metro Delhi International School is to provide an affordable education option for families doing restorative work in the area, such as human trafficking, bonded labour, healthcare, pastoral care, micro-finance, discipleship training, etc. The funds it raises for its financial aid program and teacher sponsorships help to keep costs down for these families.
Financial Aid Program
Metro Delhi International School's extensive financial aid program allows families to access international standard education, enabling them to serve in marginalised communities without sacrificing the quality of their children's schooling during their formative years. The school seeks to raise $100,000 annually, which provides scholarships for 40 children of Christian workers. In addition to contributing 10% of this amount through its operations and raising funds through school events and projects, Metro Delhi International School relies on the donations of many around the world to enable it to offer scholarships.

All of the teachers at Metro Delhi International School-national and international alike-come with a heart to serve students. The salaries the school provides are in line with those paid by local international schools in the city. They are sufficient only to cover living expenses in South Asia and are insufficient for supporting families or for saving for the future and investing in their ongoing development.
To help all of its teachers grow in their roles and provide for them beyond the basic costs of living, the school seeks to provide sponsorships of $10,000 annually for each educator. These additional funds make staying at the school long term more feasible for teachers, in turn benefiting students as they develop ongoing connections with faculty.

Ebenezer Community School (ECS) grew out of a popular Sunday school program in the same community as Metro Delhi International School. It now serves over 200 students from low-income households, from nursery-age through fifth grade. For over a decade, the Metro Delhi International School has supported the Ebenezer Community School financially and through assistance including teacher training, ESL support, technology, administrative support and fundraising.
Metro Delhi International School is seeking to provide financial assistance to nine teachers serving at the Ebenezer School. Giving these teachers $3,500 per year helps them remain in their roles and serve needy children in the community.
