Empowering People

We want to help people unlock their true potential and 

bring access to education to the underprivileged

 

Our Idea 

~
Mentoring For Change

is an initiative to empower young professionals and university graduates to better understand their career journey and achieve their aspirations. We believe in the power of mentoring and education to help people unlock their potential.

In return, we want mentees to pay it forward by donating towards the Magic Bus Foundation which is working with children of disadvantaged backgrounds to provide them an education and alleviate them from poverty. There is also an expectation that the beneficiary will work diligently with the mentors towards reaching their ambitions. 

Who We Are 

~
Our People, Our Strength

We are a group of MBA students and working professionals from varied backgrounds having worked in many industries across tech, consulting, startups, telecommunications and other industries.

 

We all share a common passion to teach and empower those whom we can reach their potential. We also believe in the power of education and want to help underprivileged youth get access to education  

 
 

Make A Difference 

~

Magic Bus works with 400,000 disadvantaged youth across India to help equip them with the skills and knowledge they need to get out of poverty and earn a livelihood. The skills are taught through sporting activities, games and classroom learning. Sessions are designed to represent real-life situations and challenges so children are able to relate these back to their daily lives.

The Magic Bus program’s mix of sport, activities and education to help empower youth to get out of poverty was very appealing to us as we also really believe in its power to help children learn and get excited.
