About Us

Who are we?

MAD is an organization  at the American Embassy School in New Delhi, India. It was founded seven years ago by the wife of the then American Ambassador to India along with couple of enthusiastic teachers, parents and students at AES. MAD has a both a PSA side, for parents, and a high school chapter through which AES students enroll in the program. In total, there are more than 80 volunteers working with over 120 students throughout the course of the year. Find out about our student and adult leadership here.


When are the classes?
All classes are Monday and Tuesday from 3:45 – 5:00 pm. Both adults and students can choose which day of the week they would like to attend; if teachers can also volunteer both days. Each level is allocated one classroom in the high school. Read more about our different levels and classes here.


How does MAD operate?

AT MAD, we bring the kids from the Vivekanand camp across the street into the AES classrooms in the high school building and teach them English. We teach at eight different levels, depending on previous English knowledge. The classes are taught by teaching teams which consist of adult and AES student volunteers. Each class has about 10-15 kids, 2-4 AES student volunteers, and 2-3 adult volunteers. We have a set curriculum and books to help efficiently teach the children.
