Montfort Community Development Society is an initiative of the Montfort Brothers of St.Gabriel, Province of Yercaud, South India.
MCDS is a humble but sincere attempt to follow the example of St.Louis de Montfort (1673 – 1716), the Founder of the Montfort Brothers’ Organisation. He equated the service of God with service of man particularly the poor and the disabled.It is an Integrated Community Development Programme reaching out to thousands of downtrodden and underprivileged in the slums of Chennai and its neighbourhood.
MCDS firmly believes that every child that is helped to learn, every woman helped to stand on her feet, the love and concern shown to an elder, every tear of a sick child wiped, add to the quality of life. That is the way, the only way, to change the world
MCDS has come a long way since its inception in 1996. Began as an NGO reaching out to children with disabilities, MCDS today is among the larger of its kind in the country. We hope this brochure will showcase the different initiatives taken by MCDS to bring dignity and justice to the lives of the weak, the neglected and the poor.
