Magic Bus organizes children from India's slums and marginalized communities in a sports-based curriculum proven to engage entire communities and have developmental impact. While playing, they imbibe the values and attitudes that will enable them to succeed and create a better life for themselves.
Two years ago Magic Bus started a football (soccer) team in Mumbai for girls to complement the boys’ team that was competing in national tournaments.
Six girl footballers, 14-16 years old, have been invited by the former U.S. Women’s National team captain Julie Foudy, to attend her Leadership Academy for a week-long program of soccer and leadership skill building.
Come and hear in them share the journey they have taken from the slums of Mumbai to the playing fields of the USA. Show your support for their courage in bucking the injunctions against girls playing a sport alongside boys.
Play with the Magic Bus Girls:
When: Saturday, June 30th, 10 am – 12 pm
Where: Randall's Island, Field 80
The event is free of charge but an RSVP would be appreciated. No refreshments; BYO.
We also encourage you to bring friends who might be interested in learning about India’s largest mentoring charity and fastest growing NGO.
