The Magic Bus Childhood to Livelihood Programme supports and empowers children to complete their secondary education and develop essential life skills. We provide young people with the skills they need to fulfil their potential and find sustainable and stable employment.


The children and young people Magic Bus works with face challenges like child marriage, child labour, lack of access to education and employment. They simply do not have the opportunity to change their lives and achieve socio-economic success.

An important part of our approach is engaging with parents and the whole community to build support for the children and young people on our programme, and for their future aspirations. To date we have worked with over 1 million young people in the poorest communities across India, Bangladesh, Myanmar and Nepal. We have set an ambitious goal to reach 3 million children and young adults by 2027.

Together we can create a world where children break free of poverty and lead fulfilling, rewarding lives.
