By enabling children to complete secondary education, it will delay their age of marriage, and they can be well equipped to have better jobs. Magic Bus helps to move a generation out of the vicious cycle of poverty.

Founded by Matthew Spacie in 1999, Magic Bus equips children and young people (age 12 to 25) with the skills and knowledge they need, to grow up and move out of poverty. This takes them from a childhood full of challenges to a life with meaningful livelihoods. Since its inception, Magic Bus has transformed the lives of one million children and young people, helping them move out of poverty.

They work with children and young people’s ecosystems – their parents, peers, community, and local institutions to ensure they act as a network of support and encouragement to move a person out of poverty.
