A group of Uzbek children and their teacher are posing for a picture. On the right, a yellow bus with solar panels on top is waiting for them. The driver inside looks at the camera, smiling. Behind them is a vast mountainous landscape.

To get more children into school, Uzbekistan has launched Kindergarten On Wheels – a project bringing the classroom to the country’s remotest regions. Currently, 65 buses fully equipped with studying materials and completed with teachers, travel across the country to accommodate young children’s learning needs. According to UNICEF, only half of children and youth worldwide are attending school, while in Uzbekistan that number is just 36 percent.
