    Bednet helps children and youngsters who are ill to continue attending classes at home, with live lessons from their classroom.

    With the warm initiatives during the "24 hours of the VUB" the Vrije Universiteit Brussel supports Bednet, a non-profit organisation which ensures the right to education. With  Bednet, children and youngsters  who are not able to go to school due to chronic illness, surgery or an accident, can watch live lessons from their classroom at home. Via a camera they can direct themselves, the children can attend the lessons and talk to their friends in class. In the back of the classroom, a computer screen enables the pupils to see their classmate at home.

    Most children or youngsters using Bednet succeed in passing on to the next class. Moreover - and probably most importantly - Bednet enables them to keep contact with their friends in class. This way - even if it's just for a moment - they can forget their illness.

    Join the "24 hours of the VUB" and help these children and youngsters forget their worries. VUBforlife, We are VUB.
