Toybank and AIESEC have fun at BalaKalakaar 2010!

Toybank partnered with AIESEC volunteers and reached out to over 900 children coming from various NGOs on the 12th of November in Tunga Village Basti near LnT Powai.

AIESEC is the largest youth organization in the world - an international, non-political, non-profit, student-run, independent and educational foundation comprised of students and recent graduates of institutions. BalaKalakaar’ by AIESEC Mumbai is an attempt to create an opportunity to help the underprivileged children to discover and develop their potential through creative exercises such as art, dance, drama, music, craft, etc.

This event was organized entirely by AIESECers and they managed to provide plenty of entertainment as well as a full fledged meal to each child attending the event. 

Toybanker Purab Kohli who is also an ex-AIESECer chatted with all the volunteers about how important it was for each one of us to live a meaningful life, about how we must spend our time impacting lives of people all around us. It was an inspiring talk for us all!

Also Toybank's dear clown cum magician Pravin took hold of the stage and the noisy kids were all of a sudden wrapped in attention and were intently watching Pravin perform! It was a delightful experience and the kids only wanted more. 



Soon Toybank started its massive toy distribution with all the super Toybankers interacting with each and every child before giving a toy. It was a tough task and yet with a strong team spirit we all managed to pull out the toys and hand over to each and every child below the age of 14 with a toy! The event was covered on Mumbai Mirror !

This day was truly a memorable one for all of us in more ways than one!
