Because children are too full of life to be confined by just letters and numbers, and going beyond basic literacy and numeracy is the need of the hour in an ever-evolving world. For us at Toybank, an initiative under The Opentree Foundation, our endeavour is to build a world where every child is empowered through healthy play.
While children think they’re just having fun, they are spontaneously honing their expressiveness and creativity. Healthy play results in enhanced cognitive skills, higher grades, good social skills, reduced drop-outs, higher earnings, and a reduction in anxiety and depression.
Ergo, since its inception on August 15, 2004, Toybank has tirelessly been promoting and working for the Right to Play for all children. And now that it’s time to look at the year in retrospect, the growing reach of Toybank, thanks to the support of our friends and kind patrons like you, feels like we’re one step closer to solving the Rubik’s Cube.
