Cityzens Giving Campaign
Magic Bus’ Healthy Goals project has been announced as one of six projects taking part in Cityzens Giving, a global charitable initiative that uses the power of football to change lives.
Run in partnership with City Football Group, whose family of clubs includes Manchester City Football Club, New York City Football Club and Melbourne City Football Club, Cityzens Giving supports young leaders in cities around the world to tackle tough challenges affecting their communities.
Young leaders from Healthy Goals will be delivering a football based project to help tackle health and hygiene issues in Kolkata, India.
Youth leader Seema Khatoon, 25, is excited about the project getting underway:
"I believe that the project would not only bring positive change among the children but being associated with such a well-known club will also help other community members develop a positive outlook on life."
Fans of all three clubs get to decide how £400,000 (US$600,000) is split and the more votes a project gets, the more funding it receives.
Over the next six weeks, fans will have the opportunity to vote for the project that inspires them the most.
