|agIc 8us ndIa FoundatIon
|agIc 8us |agIc 8us works to move some of the world's
poorest chIldren out of poverty. t uses mentors to engage
chIldren and ensure that they make the rIght choIces from
chIldhood all the way through to better lIvelIhoods as
adults.
Dur phIlosophy revolves around the concept of mentorIng.
We foster young adults to delIver our programme and to
become role models to the chIldren wIth whom we work.
These communIty leaders are fromthe same communIty as
the chIldren and serve as agents of change. We traIn these
mentors to delIver the researched, actIvItybased
currIcula we have pIoneered to brIng about behavIor
change. A large part of theIr work Is to promote gender
equalIty, access to educatIon and health servIces, as well
as developIng a chIld's socIal and emotIonal skIlls.
Four hundred mIllIon people lIvIng on less than Ps. 50 a day
(S 1 a day) In ndIa are matched by three and a half mIllIon
nonprofIt organIsatIons maInly focused on Investment In
schools and medIcal Infrastructure. ThIs works out to one
NCD for every 100 people. However lack of access,
opportunIty and partIcIpatIon contInue to be key
challenges to movIng people away from poverty. n fact,
there are sIxty mIllIon more people lIvIng In poverty now
than there were 20 years ago.
n vIew of thIs, |agIc 8us works to empower chIldren,
youth and communItIes to engage In the areas of
educatIon, health, gender, leadershIp and lIvelIhood,
enablIng them to break the poverty cycle. We work wIth
exIstIng structures In local communItIes, such as NCDs,
local schools, and Panchayats. Dur work fIts In wIth the
goals and programmes of exIstIng NCDs and the
government. Dur aIm Is to embed our programme In the
communIty so that It becomes self sustaInIng.
Dur mentorIng programme begIns when a chIld Is 8 years
old, follows theIr journey through chIldhood and aIms to
create confIdent young people.
The programme we delIver has Its groundIng In academIc
research. SportIng actIvItIes and games are structured Into
each sessIon to make them fun and appealIng to our
chIldren. SessIons are desIgned to represent reallIfe
sItuatIons and challenges so chIldren are able to relate
these back to theIr daIly lIves.
Dff the traInIng fIeld, we supplement our actIvItIes by
workIng wIth the communItIes our chIldren come from.
8esIdes regular meetIngs wIth chIldren and parents, we
hold rallIes, cleanlIness drIves and communItywIde
sportIng events aImed at empowerIng and strengthenIng
these communItIes.
For young people completIng our programme, we provIde
a youth development platform called Connect. Through
thIs programme we offer leadershIp and employabIlIty
skIlls traInIng as well as a counselIng servIce on theIr next
steps. Through thIs process we are able to CDNNECT youth
to further educatIon, vocatIonal courses, and entry
opportunItIes Into the job market.
|agIc 8us aIms to work wIth exIstIng structures In local
communItIes such as NCDs, local schools and Panchayats.
We do thIs In order to leverage theIr experIence wIth our
work complementIng theIr goals. n the longer term, our
aIm Is to embed our programme wIthIn communItIes so
that It becomes self sustaInIng.

ParvatI's Story

Contact Addresses
ParvatI PujarI, 21, Is a college student, completIng a 8achelor's degree In
Commerce from |umbaI UnIversIty. When she Is not studyIng, she Is
workIng as a communIty leader for |agIc 8us or traInIng to be a football
coach.
What makes all thIs specIal Is that ParvatI Is from one of |umbaI's 4
mIllIon extremely poor famIlIes that lIve on less than 592 (S 11.9) per
person, per month. Her parents were constructIons workers In |umbaI,
helpIng buIld a fIve star |all In central |umbaI. Dnce constructIon was
completed, they were moved Into one 8 x 12 feet temporary room whIch
floods every monsoon. "Dur lIvIng condItIon Is such that we get to see all
seasons at close quarters," laughs ParvatI. ParvatI's famIly consIsts of
nIne people, makIng It dIffIcult to make sure everyone gets enough to eat.
"We mostly make do wIth khIchdI," she says.
What created change for ParvatI was the belIef In her power to change her
own, and her famIly's future by makIng sure she used every opportunIty
that was avaIlable In the system, but not fully utIlIsed. ParvatI completed
school as her frIends got marrIed off as chIld brIdes. WhIle her peers were
strugglIng wIth premature pregnancIes, ParvatI was takIng actIvItyand
sportbased coachIng classes for younger chIldren, joInIng a job, workIng
on her football course, and travellIng abroad to raIse funds for |agIc 8us.
Through her experIence wIth |agIc 8us, ParvatI has shown that It Is
possIble to break out of poverty.
