The Power of Play

Play is a life-affirming spark that keeps children spirited and joyful even in the face of adversity. Play drives us to live in the moment. Play needs no language; Play is the language for a child to communicate and explore.

Toybank, the flagship project of The Opentree Foundation, a non-profit organisation, optimises the power of play to ensure happier, healthier and fulfilling childhoods. Our play programmes create safe spaces that empower at-risk children to grow, learn and express themselves.

Play enriches childhood in ways that lead children to grow into confident, responsible and compassionate members of our society.

It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken [adults].
