Magic Bus works with India's poorest communities and children using an award-winning activity-based curriculum culminating in a Livelihoods programme.
Our activity-based curriculum works over the long term to impact individual behavior around gender equity, education, and life skills and builds up towards future that is productive and dignified.
Our work takes children and young people on a journey from a childhood full of challenges to a life with meaningful livelihoods. We equip young people with the skills and knowledge they need to grow up and move out of poverty.
Children on our programme complete school, and go on to enroll in vocational institutes or colleges. They successfully fend off destabilizers such as child marriage and child labour and become first-generation salary earners. Our participants complete their education and have secure careers.
Our youth-centered Livelihoods Programme connects the aspirations and potential of young people to available market opportunities. We build their employability skills and map job potential based on individual strengths and mobility.
We work with support structures: parents, the community at large and local institutions to ensure results in the social, emotional and economic well-being of all young people living in that area. Our approach mobilises the entire ecosystem available to the child or youth to create transformational change in their lives.
