Story



Hello All,


On May 2019, one month ahead of the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup in England and Wales, the first Cricket World Cup for street children will take place at Lord’s Cricket Ground, which will unite 80 street children from across the world in London.


Four children from Mankhurd will represent team India at the Cricket World Cup for street children, representing their country and the aspirations of millions of children living in dire poverty. These children are a part of the Magic Bus Childhood to Livelihood programme that aims to build life skills and employability skills among children and young people. Alongside the cricket tournament, our young people will participate in a unique model-UN Congress for street children’s rights, acting as ambassadors addressing the specific issues they face and make recommendations to protect street children’s rights worldwide to achieve lasting change.

The four selected children come from a location, i.e. Mankhurd that is deeply disenfranchised due to the large number of people who live in poverty there. Mankhurd is located near Mumbai’s oldest and largest trash dumping site.The slum where our children live is surrounded by mountains of garbage from the dumping site – a toxic place to grow up. Lack of basic necessities like clean water, access to healthcare and education often push children into a maze of illnesses and hopelessness. Through Magic Bus’ programme, we have been fighting hard to keep children in schools and to keep girls from getting married early on.


Your donation will push their dreams and fortunes forward. 


Our children will represent the tough realities that they negotiate almost every day of their lives. Our children will represent the resilience that they have learnt and shown in the face of threats to their freedom and education. Our children will give voice to the stories that remain unheard, the struggles that remain behind the closed doors of millions of households living in poverty in India.

What would this opportunity mean for our children

Encouraging leadership among children with this exposure

Passing on cricketing skills learnt during the exposure to other interested children in the community

Challenging community mind set around girls’ participation in public spaces

Exposure to Child Rights and onward dissemination of the same in the community once the children come back


We are grateful for your help!
