Magic Bus

Founded by Matthew Spacie in 1999, Magic Bus equips children and young people in the age group of 12 to 18, with the skills and knowledge they need, to grow up and move out of poverty.

This takes them from a childhood full of challenges to a life with meaningful livelihoods. Since its inception, Magic Bus has transformed the lives of one million children and young people, helping them move out of poverty.

Magic Bus developed a life skills programme that aims to connect underserved children to vocations through sport.

United Through Sports

United Through Sports is an alliance of many organisations working together through sports to bring unity and peace to an often-divided world. UTS is actively supported by the IOC, GAISF SportAccord and AIMS for the trust granted to us in coordinating this much needed initiative.

United Through Sports brought world renowned personnel to one round table in 2018 at the inauguration of UTS during the SportAccord Convention in Bangkok. The opening conference showed the importance of working together as one and the three day festival is an affirmation of our youth looking to us not only for guidance but reminding us all about our duties and the impact our decisions have on their future.

United Through Sport

United Through Sport (UTS) is a UK registered development through sport charity helping disadvantaged communities reach their full potential in sport, education and health. We do this in Africa, South America and will be launching in Asia soon.
UTS are committed to using sport as a tool to develop disadvantaged and vulnerable youth by:

  • Using direct sports coaching – for its health benefits, improved emotional well-being and increased life skills (teamwork, leadership, decision making, communication).
  • Using sport to discuss critical issues – by delivering curriculums on topics such as HIV/AIDS awareness in a fun and interactive manner on the sports field.
  • Using sport for improved education – by providing pathways to success for talented and dedicated individuals through scholarships to top local schools and tertiary education.

United Through Sport supports two core programmes, built up by a number of projects in each country they work in. The first is a Mass Participation Programme which gives thousands of disadvantaged kids the chance to play and enjoy the sports they love. The second is the Schools of Excellence (Junior and Senior) programme which provide top-level coaching and academic schooling for aspiring athletes.

United Through Sport is built on a clear pyramid structure. The Mass Participation Programme forms the bottom tier, the Schools of Excellence forms the second tier, and the careers in sport forms the top tier. All their work, donations and volunteering go into supporting this pyramid structure.

Sport Education Partnership Framework


UNESCO is launching a dynamic, data-driven, multi-stakeholder Sport-Education Partnership (SEP) framework.

SEP will unite public and private stakeholders behind an integrated vision of development which harnesses the combined power of sport and education eco-systems to progress the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Agenda (3, 4, 5, 17).

The Sport-Education Partnership framework is impact-oriented and aims at creating transformative behaviourial- and systems-based change, starting with schools.

The first step for this was taken with the creation of UNESCO’s Quality Physical Education (QPE) Policy Package, which practically supports governments develop inclusive child-centered physical education policy.
