Toybank-Show some love!

Posted by Sunaina Patnaik at Tuesday, May 01, 2012


How often do we see kids tugging onto their favourite toys and running around? Quite often, right? The childhood of any kid is filled with colourful toys. In spite of having many toys, we tend to have only one toy as our favourite and tend to ignore the others but hey, what about the kids who do not have any toys? They too have every right to play with the toys.

And hence, TOYBANK is here to provide toys to all the kids who live on limited means. Support the cause and show some love!




Activity: Toybank, a non-profit organization has been set up with the aim of providing toys to children who come from a weak socio-economic background.

Details:

Goals:
To ensure that children from under privileged backgrounds receive toys through collection and distributions.
To bridge the gap between children from different backgrounds by creative play/group events/community events.
To make play space available for children through-- Toy libraries in available infrastructures; reclaim open public spaces for children.
To design and thus provide toys that will be context specific, by having toys made in local languages as well.

Support: Children, Right to Play, Right to Leisure, non-formal education, toys.

Note: We are looking for volunteer coordinators in Pune and Bangalore. We are looking for NGOs working on education of children in Delhi/NCR. This post is a part of BlogAdda's blogger-social-responsibility-the-next-step Bloggers Social Responsibility (BSR)
 I am exercising my BSR. You can too with three simple steps. Visit http://www.blogadda.com/bsr/ and support the NGO's.
