Soaring to heights of excellence
We envision enriching lives of underserved children in the rural areas of Dehradun. Our aim is to give these children a meaningful introduction to education; a warm, encouraging and healthy environment which provides unique learning experiences.
Says JMMT Co-ordinator Manu Kaur: “Shubham was helpful by nature, especially when new tasks came up one after the other. “Don’t worry, I will do it”, he said often. He kept a level head even if he did get frustrated at times. He was quite artistic and enjoyed drawing and making greeting cards.
Rahul Das, who was JMMT’s first entrant to the prestigious Doon School, based on his performance at the entrance test. Rahul is now finishing his first year at Manipal University. While at the Doon School, he travelled to South Africa on a student exchange and is a fine, confident young man, focussed on a possible future career in sports medicine.
Ex Principal Susham Sood shares these memories of Rahul, “Rahul Das was quiet and observant. He often kept to himself in the corner seat near the window, with a keen eye on the happenings in the class. A boy of few words, he had the ability to think out of the box. In academics, he was always ahead of the class and was ready to do tasks of increasing difficulty.”

WGS shall endeavor to offer full scholarship to many more students in future and support the cause of spreading education to the underprivileged strata of the society.”

JMMT Principal Savitri Narayan says of Sabia, “We remember her as an “up and about” girl, interested to participate in everything. She grabbed any opportunity to learn or try something and relished the attention. She is cheerful, talkative and had a sense of anticipation and excitement about her.”
