Hello Friends,

Thanks for all your support over the past 10 months.  Things are moving along at Magic Bus and we're proud to report we're working on a number of really game changing projects.  We just finished up a week in Portland at Nike as part of a consortium of thought leaders in the space of physical activity.  The report can be found at www.designedtomove.org, and if you browse the case study section, you'll see a spotlight on Magic Bus!

Closer to the programs, we're proud to say that 44% of the 230,000 children in the program are girls today and 98% of girls of adolescent age are attending secondary school regularly, more than double the national average of 46%.  We now have position papers out on our theory of change and how it leads to measurable impacts in the areas of health, gender equality, education, and livelhoods.  The goal now is clear - help as many children own the ideas that will help them escape poverty.

To this end, we're happy to announce that this project on GlobalGiving is now transitioning to from the girls' exchange program to our core program that impacts more than 100,000 girls on a daily basis.

The focus of this project is to ensure that 4000 girls in India between the ages of 13-16 make it TO and THROUGH secondary school, which will lead to an education, and more importantly, a life free of early marraige and pregnancy.  

It will take an average of only $25/year to enroll and ensure a girl in Magic Bus stays in school - how sure are we???  98% sure!!!

Please do all you can to help us and these girls reach their goals!  Donate, spread the word, link us to your social media, reach out to get more info on how you can talk to your school, college, or workplace to see how they'd like to get involved through a number of ways!

Let's get this done together!  Wishing you all a very prosperous 2013!
