Magic Bus conducted a two-day sport for development training at the prestigious Lakshmibai National University of Physical Education (LNUPE), Gwalior during March 13-14. The training, conducted by veteran Magic Bus trainers Chirag and Subhomoy, was part of a community sports training programme for sports volunteers of African countries.
The whole event was run in conjunction with Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports (MYAS) and Ministry of External Affairs (MEA), under Government of India's flagship community sports scheme, the Panchayat Yuva Krida Aur Khel Abhiyan (PYKKA).
Under the programme, where Magic Bus was entrusted with the module of sport for development, 45 sports volunteers from 11 countries of Africa took part in the training.
Magic Bus training was highly appreciated with valuable feedbacks. Many countries showed interest in exchange programmes. The trainers were referred to as a 'special breed' by the participants. They emphasised that Magic Bus is doing a marvelous job and really creating magic.
The participants also claimed that they have attended various sports programmes across the globe but Magic Bus stands out in reducing the barrier to work in community.
