Cheers to the new year, may it be a memorable one!

Dear Mobile School Group friend, 

With the end of the year approaching, we want to take the time to warmly thank all the people and organizations we’ve cooperated with this year. Thanks to your continuous support we were able to boost the self-esteem of thousands of children living, working and playing on the streets worldwide.  

With your support, we have realised the following projects in 2015:

•    We have implemented three brand new mobile schools in Greece, Bangladesh and – only a couple of weeks ago - in Spain.
•    In Ethiopia, Tanzania and Peru, we’ve transferred mobile schools to new partner projects and provided training to the new teams of street educators.
•    We have visited new interested partners in Ethiopia, Kenya and Mexico to see if we can implement a mobile school there next year.
•    In Ecuador, the Philippines and Greece, we’ve brought together street educators from different organizations to exchange ideas on the daily work with the mobile school. 

For the third year in a row, StreetwiZe has grown significantly, thanks to the many companies that chose to be inspired by our workshops to develop their organizations. Your investment allowed us to support and to expand the Mobile School network, which increased our social impact as well.

If you add this to a well-attended and cosy Streetsleep on the International Day for Street Children, the Belgian Blast – a brand new event on educational innovation – and an overwhelming number of participants for the Duw Mee-campaign, it should be clear that a lot of things were happening in all departments of the organization in 2015.

In order to increase our impact again next year, we are already focusing on the plans for 2016. With new mobile schools in Ethiopia and Kenya, new exploratory expeditions in Greece and India and a strong focus on reinforcing the quality of our partnerships, Mobile School is ready to make a difference for street children in the coming year.

Within StreetwiZe,  we have been working hard on the expansion of our portfolio. In addition to the 4 Streetskills (Positive Focus, Agility & Resilience, Proactive Creativity en Cooperative Competition) we also offer 4 Street Technique (Pitching, Storytelling, Leading Change & Connect). This way we have more building blocks to better meet the individual needs of each client. We will also keep focusing on authentic experiences as a basis for sustainable personal development, which translates into the intensification of both our Leadership and Change Expedition.

We are already looking forward to cooperating with you in 2016 and hope that we can count on your support in the new year as well, because it really makes a difference!

We wish you a great end of the year and a beautiful start of 2016.

Kind regards,
The Mobile School & StreetwiZe-team
