The India Sunday School Union (ISSU) was formed in 1876 under the leadership of Rev. Dr. T.J. Scott, a Methodist educator. A little over a hundred years since the beginning of Sunday Schools in England in 1780's, which took education to child laborers. The focus of the Sunday School movement was on reading, writing, arithmetic, and values for character development and as a foundation for social institutions that contribute to the flourishing of life. The Sunday School movement was a precursor to the universalization of elementary education for all, first in England and Wales (1870) then the light spread to distant lands. From its inception ISSU has actively promoted Sunday Schools in South Asia and from China to Egypt. ISSU strives to be creative in its mission in the Indian context without forgetting its roots.
