With a population of 2000, Water Tank is located in the northern part of Delhi, India.
The problems pertaining to Water Tank are similar to urban slum clusters. Lack of gainful employment opportunities have pushed much of this community below the poverty line. Lack of awareness about the benefits of education is a crucial problem in this community.
Magic Bus has been working on this issue since 2014. There are 200 children in our programme here.
A few of the areas of behaviour change addressed by Magic Bus volunteers and mentors include:
Magic Bus sessions are divided into 3 parts:
Warm up: The development goal is introduced using interactive activities
Main activity: The development goal is reinforced using sports and activities
Review: A discussion is facilitated to draw parallels to real-life situations and sum up the learning objectives.
