Magic Bus impacts the lives of its primary stakeholder, the child, in ways that are both manifest and subtle. Some of these impacts were captured in studies that engaged with children, their parents as well as other members of the community such as teachers and principals.
The information below is collated from the following studies →

By the time a Magic Bus child finishes her or his first year in our programme, she or he is more aware of issues relating to gender-equity and rights, and is therefore better equipped to behave fairly with people of any gender.
By the time a Magic Bus child finishes his or her first year, she or he starts exhibiting a high degree of health-related knowledge, beliefs and practices.
