John Martyn Memorial School
Established in 1985, The John Martyn Memorial School is a charitable primary school for children from rural areas of Dehradun. The school was formed in Salangaon as a response to the desperate need for a good primary education of children from 20 surrounding villages. Children from impoverished families, who had no access to quality education, were provided with an opportunity to create a strong foundation of learning for a brighter future.
The past 32 years has been an incredible journey as the school witnessed lives of many disadvantaged children transforming because of quality primary education. Since its inception, JMMS has grown from 25 students in a tent to 175 students in 7 classes from Nursery to grade 5. Most of these children are first generation learners in their families.
