Nand Lal slum, Part-V, Gopalpur is located in north Delhi and is approximately 25 years old.
Migrants from Bihar and Uttar Pradesh are the primary settlers. Daily wage work is the most predominant source of income. Uncertain periods of employment and meagre wages mean that most of the households settled in this area are adversely impacted by poverty.
Magic Bus has been working in this community since 2011. In the last four years, we have given a platform to young leaders within the community resulting in 16 Community Youth Leaders (CYLs) being a part of our programme here. There are 501 children who are a part of our programme.
A few of the areas of behaviour change addressed by Magic Bus volunteers and mentors include:
Magic Bus sessions are divided into 3 parts:
Warm up: The development goal is introduced using interactive activities
Main activity: The development goal is reinforced using sports and activities
Review: A discussion is facilitated to draw parallels to real-life situations and sum up the learning objectives.
