Meet Those Who Create
the ‘Magic’ behind Magic Bus


One of Magic Bus' biggest strengths is its people, who ensure they strive to fulfil the organisation's mission and vision while upholding its values. If we have been able to impact one million lives in the last 24 years, it is primarily because of the people who have made it happen through their dedication and expertise. Magic Bus is fortunate to have some of the brightest minds of both the corporate and the non-profit world working towards empowering and changing the lives of children.
We're a diverse team of professionals who want to show that India's poverty problem is solvable. We work to make sure children living in poverty learn and grow up well so that livelihood options open up by the time they are adults.
