As it celebrates its 20th anniversary, NGO Magic Bus aims to lift millions of children out of poverty
Founded in 1999 by then Cox and Kings chief operating officer Matthew Spacie, Magic Bus was conceived as an initiative that used sport to impart learning and self-confidence to underprivileged children. Twenty years later, it’s a globally recognized poverty alleviation NGO, influencing the lives of over 375,000 children and young people in 22 Indian states, as well as thousands more in Myanmar, Bangladesh and Nepal. It claims to have helped lift over a million children out of poverty. Spacie and Magic Bus CEO Jayant Rastogi spoke to Lounge about the organization’s 20-year journey, and plans for the future.
