WHO IS HE?

  • He had a strong commitment to the local branch of Chiro, an important youth movement in Belgium.  
  • He studied industrial design and development cooperation. 
  • He worked with a Columbian association for street kids.  
  • He created Mobile School in 1998. 

 

WHAT PROBLEM IS HE TARGETTING?

  • There are 100 million street kids globally. 90% of them that visit a drop-in centre leave within 48 hours (internal evaluation of 40 projects). 
  • Many programs aimed at helping street kids fail as they are not given sufficient means to achieve a radical change to their lives.
  • In the field, actors are often ill equipped to help the children as they do not take into account the qualities developed by these children in the street. 

 

HIS SOLUTIONS 

  • To enable street kids to take their future in their own hands: helping to boost their self-esteem to value the qualities acquired to survive (creativity, positivity etc…). 
  • To create adapated education tools: to bring into account ‘their’ environment. 
  • To build on existing land: by transferring the tools and methodology of Mobile School to facilitate a familiar context for the children to work in. 
  • To create evaluation systems: based on the individual context and essential elements of reintroducing self-esteem and to monitor the progress of each child. 
  • To develop a business: through training and transferring skills directly to the streets (Streetwize in Belgium) to empower all activities.
