On Sunday, April 10th, 26 children from one of our partnering grantee programs, Magic Bus India Foundation, had the opportunity to meet the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
Based in Mumbai, Magic Bus works towards equipping some of India’s poorest children and young people with the skills and knowledge to grow up and be successful, to move out of poverty and to take control of their future.
On their first official trip to India, the Royal couple took part in a Magic Bus program session. During the session, Prince William and Kate navigated their way from one ‘safe zone’ to another, a metaphor for the stages in one’s educational journey. While dodging balls to reach the end of the finish line, symbolizing the achievement of a sustainable livelihood, the couple had a first-hand experience in the activity based learning session.
