Rugby World Cup kicks off!

It's the start of the Rugby World Cup!

 

Magic Bus began life using rugby when Founder Matthew Spacie, at the time the COO of Cox and Kings in Mumbai, had been playing with a rugby ball outside his office and noticed a group of boys living at the bus stop across the street. He called them over to hop the fence and play some rugby. Their games quickly became a routine and over the next few months Matthew began coaching them as a team. The effect on the boys was remarkable. Being part of a team inspired them to aim higher. They went back to school, enrolled in vocational courses and became mentors for younger children in their community.

 

16 years on, Magic Bus still uses rugby in sessions to address key issues in children's lives and this video shows how. If you'd like to help support the Magic Bus programme, please consider making a donation.

 

Enjoy the tournament!
