    Magic Bus works with India's poorest communities and children using an award-winning activity-based curriculum culminating in a Livelihoods programme. Our activity-based curriculum works over the long term to impact individual behaviour around gender equity, education, and life skills and builds up towards future that is productive and dignified.

Our approach mobilises the entire ecosystem available to the child or youth to create transformational change in their lives.
