The Magic Bus program follows the theory that children learn best while playing. This theory serves as the basis of our award-winning activity-based curriculum developed with support from The World Bank.

The program addresses objectives in five impact areas – the child’s right to play, formal education, gender, health and socio-emotional learning. Each impact area consists of a set of messages which are delivered during weekly sessions. All of the objectives in each impact area are interrelated and thus promote the holistic development of children.

Each session is led by one boy and one girl Community Youth Leader (CYL) per 50 children and last two hours. In parallel with the children’s sessions, Magic Bus run parents meetings to reinforce messages and address community issues.
