Challenge

There are 472 million children in India. 50.3% of them drop out before completing 10th standard. Poverty is one of the major causes that children do not complete school, are pushed into child labour or married off before they turn 18.

Solution

With your donation, you can help Magic Bus provide: Regular activity-based sessions carried out through the year to ensure that the child is equipped with essential life skills that help her complete secondary schooling Consistent work with parents and teachers to ensure children grow up in a protective environment at home and in school Skill-building and training sessions with youth through our Livelihoods Centers which prepares them for a job in the organized sector

Long-Term Impact

Children on the Magic Bus programme complete school, and go on to enroll in vocational institutes or colleges. They successfully fend off de-stabilizers such as child marriage and child labour and become first-generation salary earners. Our participants complete their education and have secure careers. At present, we work with 400,000 children and 10,000 young people in 23 states of India.
