About Magic Bus

Founded in 1999, Magic Bus works with children and young people living in poverty, in India, taking them from a childhood full of challenges to a life with meaningful livelihoods. We equip children and young people in the age group of 12 to 18, with the skills and knowledge they need to grow up and move out of poverty. Children on the Magic Bus program successfully fend off destabilizers such as child marriage and child labor to complete school and become first generation salary earners having secure careers in the organized sector. We work with support structures like parents, teachers, the community at large and local government institutions to ensure social, emotional and economic well-being for all young people living in that area. Our approach mobilizes the entire ecosystem available to the child or young person to create transformational change in their lives. Our Govt partnership programme is designed to collaborate with the government school system to train teachers to provide life skill education to adolescents in grades 6 to 10.

Our youth-centered Livelihoods Program connects the aspirations and potential of young people to available market opportunities. We build their employability skills and map job potential based on individual strengths and mobility.
