Magic Bus & Laureus Sport For Good
Magic Bus will take children and young people on a journey from a childhood of abject poverty and challenges such as child marriage and child labour, to a fulfilling life with a respectable livelihood.
Working with their communities and families, Magic Bus will deliver a programme that teaches life skills and resilience. Working with their schools, Magic Bus will ensure that they attend school and their education is optimised.
As these children become adults, Magic Bus will work with them to ensure they have the right employability skills, get jobs and contribute to their communities.
Founded under the Patronage of Nelson Mandela, Laureus Sport for Good uses sport as a powerful and cost-effective tool to help children and young people overcome violence, discrimination and disadvantage in their lives.
Over the past two decades, we have developed a global network of grantee partners and a worldwide charitable infrastructure. We have also developed a depth of understanding and corresponding credibility in our field and are recognised as a leading organisation in the fast-growing Sport for Development community.
Today, Laureus Sport for Good is supporting more than 200 programmes in 40 countries. All the organisations we fund use sport as a tool or intervention to combat violence, discrimination and disadvantage faced by young people.
