BENEFITING: MAGIC BUS USA
I was given the incredible opportunity to partner with Magic Bus, an NGO that empowers underprivileged children in India to break the cycle of poverty. They do this through education, leadership and employment, while also focusing on gender equality and health. This is an issue I am very passionate about, and I have worked closely with the leaders of the company to discuss an communications internship.
The first two weeks, I will be joining a group of students to learn about the company and all its work, including going into rural areas, urban slums, etc. For the remaining three weeks, I will be producing articles, videos, photos and more about Magic Bus and its mission. I will conclude this experience possibly (depending on funds) debriefing with their fundraising office in NYC.
As a Cutler Scholar at Ohio University, this experience will fulfill my six-week service enrichment, but the stipend given to me will only cover housing, food and travel costs within India. Unfortunately, that does not leave funding for a flight there and back. If you feel compelled to give, I would greatly appreciate any contribution. I look forward to this incredible opportunity.
