Next in our Customer Spotlight series we find out more about Magic Bus.
Who are Magic Bus?
Magic Bus is committed to developing local community mentors who take children living in poverty on the journey from childhood to livelihood. Over a ten year period, our mentors work with children and parents through a weekly curriculum of sporting activities, which are used as metaphors to change behaviour in the areas of education, health, gender and livelihood.
We always access existing community partnerships to ensure that young people move from poverty, and develop into young adults with greater control and choice.
All Magic Bus graduates are offered the opportunity to enrol in livelihood programmes creating, at scale, a movement of competent, confident young people ready to make a significant difference to their lives.
“The Magic Bus is the largest sports charity in India. Basically established in 1999 so we’ve been running for 15 years now. We started in Mumbai and we’re now in 20 states across India our main hubs are Delhi and Mumbai but we operate across India in both rural and urban areas.”
