You can help transform childhoods by ensuring that at-risk children learn and develop through the Power of Play. To bring learning and development to the lives of children in Maharashtra, we welcome partnerships as a part of Corporate Social Responsibility endeavours.
Our Play Programme is geared to meet:

Play Metrics that Matter
We have a streamlined system to monitor and evaluate the impact of our Play programmes. Alongside quantitative data that helps to monitor the scale of our work, we give special focus to the life-changing stories behind this data.
Every partner receives regular updates with data and impacts stories from the field that ensures complete transparency in fund utilisation.
Toybank’s 3-year impact study with over 8,000 children shows how play changed children’s lives in Mumbai’s urban informal settlements.

Ways to partner with us
Fund Our Play2Learn Centres
By funding our Play2Learn centres, you can support children’s development through play-based learning while aligning with education initiatives, including India’s National Education Policy 2020. Additionally, our programmes offer a flexible approach to CSR, allowing corporate partners to tailor their support to specific goals while making a tangible difference in the lives of children and communities.
Encourage your employees to volunteer with Toybank and engage with children through our play programmes based on their availability, skills, and interests. Our volunteer engagement team matches the opportunities with your employees. Before beginning, we provide sensitisation sessions to corporate volunteers to talk about the importance of Play and how our work is critical for children's overall well-being and growth.
Encouraging Payroll Giving for Toybank is an easy and effective way to support our cause. Employees can donate a small portion of their monthly salary to help create safe and inclusive spaces for at-risk children to play and learn. This regular contribution will help us sustain our programmes and reach out to more children. As a corporate, you can multiply employee giving through a matching grant.
