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 childrenâ€”children who end up in India’s train stations and are often 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.
