A brief history

The Moravian Institute is a registered charity providing education to underprivileged students in Dehra Dun, India.

Established in 1963 the Institute was founded by Br Eliyah Phunthsog whilst he was undertaking the revision of the New Testament in Tibetan for the Bible Society of India in Dehra Dun district. During this time he met a number of Tibetan refugees who had just fled from their homeland across the Himalayas. What blossomed over the years was a work involving a school, a hostel and a vocational training program.

The Moravian Institute is affiliated to the Council for the ISC (Indian School Certificate) Examinations, New Delhi since 1978
