Magic Bus enables some of the world's poorest families to move out of poverty. Through the use of a mentoring model and a sport-based curriculum, it engages children and ensures that they make the right choices so that they have a constructive journey from childhood all the way through towards better and dignified livelihoods as adults.

As a result, children emerge from the Magic Bus programme as adults who have more control and choice in their lives and who contribute confidently and constructively to a better society. The young people who mentor them move into respectable livelihoods, continuing to function as role models in their communities.

“Sport is a powerful tool because it acts as a magnet attracting children and youth and keeping them engaged in the programme. Through sport and activity-based learning, children develop confidence, as well as team work, leadership and other core skills and habits that equip them to move out of poverty.”
