Magic Bus works with some of the world’s poorest children and young
people, taking them from a childhood full of challenges to a life with
meaningful livelihoods. We equip young people with the skills and
knowledge they need to grow up and move out of poverty.
Children on the programme complete school, and go on to enroll in
vocational institutes or colleges. They successfully fend off
destabilizers such as child marriage and child labour and become
first-generation salary earners. Our participants complete their
education and have secure careers.
Our youth-centered Livelihoods Programme 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.
We work with support structures: parents, the community at large and
local institutions to ensure results in social, emotional and economic
well-being for all young people living in that area. Our approach
mobilises the entire ecosystem available to the child or youth to
create transformational change in their lives.
