At Magic Bus, our objective is to break the poverty cycle, one child at a time. We work to equip some of India s poorest children and young people with the skills and knowledge they need to take control of their future. Through a structured 10-year programme delivered by volunteer youth leaders from the same community, children learn about issues relating to education, health, gender and livelihood. These youth leaders are supported and trained by Magic Bus, and they are enrolled on a Livelihood programme to prepare them for higher education, vocational training or employment. Through a network of 8,000 such community youth leaders, and through strategic partnerships with schools, other NGOs and institutions, Magic Bus currently accompanies over 300,000 children on their journey from childhood to livelihood, guiding them through challenges and opening up opportunities which allow them to move out of poverty.
