Summary

The Mobile School is an educational tool that provides non-formal education to children that have little or no access to education. They live either in remote areas or in communities that are confronted with extreme poverty. The problems their families face stop them from going to school and are pushing them to start working on very young ages to help provide for their families. For some of them, the time they spend on the Mobile School activities is the only time thy get to act as children.

Challenge

The North Eastern Region in Romania, where Iasi is situated, is the poorest region in the EU, and children are most affected by this situation. In the families living in the disadvantaged communities in the city, education is not a priority, but surviving day by day comes first. Children are often not able to go to school, either because their family can not support them or because they are involved in providing for the family. Thus, many children living there have little or no education at all.

Solution

The Mobile School is an educational tool that allows educational activities to be organized directly in the community. It's a box on four wheels, with expandable tables on which we can attach different boards on topics such as literacy, mathematics, health education, emotions, creative therapy etc. Children living in the disadvantaged communities have the chance to develop their skills and raise their self-esteem so that they can later go (back) to school.

Long-Term Impact

Education seems to be the best solution to break the vicious circle of poverty that affects disadvantaged communities. Investing in children's education is the action with the highest probability to bring changes in the status quo of these communities. The Mobile School is a true magnet for children and it shows a different face of the educational process: learning by playing, which brings up a positive attitude towards learning and the importance of education.
