MATTHEW SPACIE

Matthew Spacie is the Founder of Magic Bus India Foundation, an organisation that mentors some of India’s poorest and youngest from education to livelihood. It started with a group of children Matthew started playing rugby with. While he managed to engage them using sports-based activities, he realised that more could be done to equip them with the discipline, soft skills, and work ethic that they would need beyond their youth. The foundation also focuses on the training and development of volunteers to prepare them for the corporate world.

Matthew is a radical and a driver of change. Since Magic Bus was established in 1999, they have reached over 380,000 children across 22 states and 820 schools in India, eliminated child marriages, and drastically improved employment. Matthew has been elected an Ashoka Fellow, a TED Fellow, the Social Entrepreur of the Year at the Business Standard CSR Awards, and was conferred an MBE for services to children in the Commonwealth.
