Defying your limitations through learning and adventures in the wild is often unaffordable for economically and socially disadvantaged children. We support and promote groups of these young people in a Youth Promotion Programme run by Outward Bound. Courses for the bereaved, people with disabilities, and German language courses for migrant children are also offered. The training takes place in Baad (Austria) and Schwangau (Germany).
Due to a lack of education, young people in Indian slums are often unable to find employment. On top of that, young girls get married off before their childhood is barely over. The Livelihood Programme aims to assist all participants in acquiring Life Skills, at the same time offering young girls equal learning opportunities in schooling and in interpersonal skills. The mentoring leads to employment. To this aim and for this purpose we provide finance for the new Centre of the Magic Bus India Foundation.
