MDLS Makes Learning a Joy

In this blog, I want to explain the concept behind our approach to improving quality of education in government schools. We call this initiative, Multi-Dimensional Learning Space or MDLS.

Multi-Dimensional Learning Space (MDLS) is a during-school and after-school program that provides multi-dimensional learning opportunities to school children to explore, experiment, discover, and learn in multiple ways. 

The India I had never seen

Visit Report by ILP Youth Volunteer, Purnima Venkat

Most of my earlier trips to India were to the biggest cities – Bangalore, Delhi etc. They were full of crowds, dust and traffic.  It was my normal image of India: a poor, dirty, crowded, and very competitive place. A place where dogs and other animals roamed the streets starving, begging for food and where people sat in slums with rags on them. At least that’s what I first thought. This was my first journey into India’s villages and until now I had only seen photos and videos of what it was like.
