What We Do
The Magic Bus Programme uses a special combination of Physical Activity, Play, Sport and Mentoring to engage with children and young people living in poverty. Through our sessions, we teach important life lessons that will help those taking part to escape poverty.
How You Can Help
Magic Bus relies on the generous support of our donors to help children and young people in Southern Asia escape poverty and live happier lives. There are lots of ways that you can help improve the life of a child living in poverty – the Magic starts with you!
Where We Work
Magic Bus is working with over 380,000 children across four countries: India, Nepal, Bangladesh and Myanmar. In each of these countries, children and young people are trapped in poverty, with little hope of escape without a positive intervention.
Magic Bus relies on the generous support of individuals to fund our work with children and young people living in poverty in India.
£20 can enable one child to go through the Magic Bus programme for one year
£50 can provide three children with a full education up to the end of secondary school, sparing them from the horrors of child marriage and child labour
£140 can train one young person as a Magic Bus Community Youth Leader, leading life-changing sessions for children from marginalised communities for a year
£1,000 can empower a village of 50 children to take part in the Magic Bus programme for a year
