Mobile classroom for train stations in India

Here’s a mobile classroom that is used to teach children in India. The founder of the project invented a way to go directly to orphaned and homeless children, who end up in India’s train stations and are otherwise swept up by adults for exploitation. Learn more on the project web site or watch a PBS documentary.

I admire the focus, determination, and grit of problem solvers in India. This mobile classroom, in particular, is an inspiration as we work on our next project, a portable reading room and learning environment for American cities. Thanks to Magda Gordon for turning us onto the train schools and sharing the photos below.
