What Our Toybankers Have To Say
Empowering children through the power of play
“Play is essential of all. For children the necessity is manifold. A lot of learning, development, and well-being happens through play. But many children from poor economic conditions are not getting the required access to play. Toybank's work tries to reduce this disparity.”
“Toybank baccho ka khel ke duvara mansik vikas karta hai, bacche bade hokar khud ke pairon par khade ho sake.”
“Play to me is active, it's when a child is actively engaged in something physically and/or mentally. It can be structured, it can be free play, it has to be fun and spark joy for the player.”
