DJ Lost Frequencies and Arnoud Raskin, the inventor and founder of Mobile School, visited the Mobile School in Querétaro, a city in the heart of Mexico, last month.
Mobile School is a Belgian organisation that works with street children worldwide. Under the motto “If a child cannot go to school, we bring the school to the child”, they are active in more than 30 countries.
The focus of the mobile schools is on strengthening the self-esteem and identity of street children and allowing them to discover their talents through play. Since last summer, the organisation has been supported by the Tomorrowland Foundation.
Tomorrowland turned the unique account of Felix and Arnoud into an unforgettable 32-minute documentary that can be viewed from 4 pm on today on all social media from both Tomorrowland and Mobile School.
With the creation of this documentary, the Tomorrowland Foundation aims to give an organisation like Mobile School the opportunity to spread their positive message about street child empowerment to a worldwide community of more than 30,000,000 fans and followers on the Tomorrowland social media.
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. Thanks to their support through the Tomorrowland Foundation and the creation of this documentary, Tomorrowland is giving us a huge opportunity to send that message around to the world”.
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.”
Tomorrowland Foundation and Mobile School
After the construction and opening of the first Love Tomorrow Music & Arts School in Sekha, Nepal and the results of a collaboration with the Belgian independent development organisation CUNINA, last summer Tomorrowland also announced a partnership with the non-profit Mobile School through the Tomorrowland Foundation.
Through their Foundation, Tomorrowland wants to turn the festival’s positivity and sense of belonging into support for projects designed to give vulnerable young people and children all over the world the opportunity to develop personally and creatively.
