Magic Bus USA is proud to be an official charity partner of the 2016 TCS New York City Marathon for the 4th year in a row!
Since 1999, Magic Bus has been working in India with marginalized children and youth to help them break the cycle of poverty. At Magic Bus, we move children out of poverty by nurturing them on a journey through from childhood to livelihood.
Magic Bus focuses on the vital inputs of education, personal and community healthcare, gender equality, and livelihood to ensure that young people make the right choices from childhood all the way through to gainful employment. Local community leaders are trained to deliver an award-winning curriculum that uses sport as a metaphor to address complex development issues through the formative years of a child’s life. Every participant is offered a livelihood program which focuses on ensuring that our youth actually get a job.
We welcome our runners and are hoping you will lend your support! To learn more about what we do, please visit www.magicbususa.org.
