Thanks to the support of the People of Tomorrow, MOBILE SCHOOL is able to continue and expand their great work around the world.
DJ Lost Frequencies and Arnoud Raskin, the inventor and founder of Mobile School, visited a Mobile School project in Querétaro, a city in the heart of Mexico. Discover their amazing story and meet the children of Querétaro is this unique 30-minute documentary.
Felix de Laet aka Lost Frequencies: “Just like the opening of the music school in Nepal, this experience in Mexico left a deep impression on me. Each of the children I met gave me so much love and received me with open arms. They really inspired me! I am therefore very happy that I can help Mobile School to spread their message.”
In 2019-2020 the Tomorrowland Foundation will collaborate with MOBILE SCHOOL. This non-profit organization is focused on working with street children all over the world, helping them to discover and unlock their talents and regain a positive self-image.
The mobile schools are extendable blackboards on wheels, which come with more than 250 educational panels, working on themes such as creative therapy, reading and writing, health, hygiene and social skills. Once a mobile school arrives in an area with street children, the blackboard slides open to create a two-sided 6-meter long educational tool, helping the street educators to interact with the children.
Currently, there are 57 mobile schools in 30 countries spread across four continents.
Arnoud Raskin, founder of Mobile School:“There are more than 150 million street children in the world, including in Belgium! These are 150 million unique individuals, each with their own talents that are being wasted. That is a big loss for society! We have to find a different way of looking at those children and young people. We should not simply feel sorry for them, or even worse, ignore them... We give them the feeling that they are part of society and offer them the opportunity to develop their talents. We shouldn't feel sorry for them, or worse, ignore them... We must show them that they are part of society and give them the opportunity to develop their talents Only in this way can they escape the negative spiral of the street.
