Toybank sets up a new Community Toy Library!

Toybank kickstarts with its first ‘Community Toy Library' in collaboration with Community Outreach Programme (CORP) at their centre in Reay Road. 

CORP facilitates fully functioning and socially responsible communities. To achieve this vision, CORP provides access to fundamental social services such as education, health care, nutrition and vocational training, enabling communities to pull themselves out of poverty and become self-reliant, independent and socially responsible. 


Toybank has set up one play centre for the Balwadi at CORP, Reay Road. and a Community Toy Library for the children who live in the slum area in that community.

We donated 60 toys to the Balwadi section and 80 Toys for the Toy Library. We have received an overwhelming response from the community, and the Toy Library registrations are already full! 


The children will get access to the Toy Library on Tuesday's and Saturday's every week. 
The Follow-up events will start this Saturday (18th Feb. 2012) from 2pm to 4pm.
 
Volunteers who are interested to attend the follow-up sessions at the Toybank's Community Toy Library, can write to us on farnaza@toybank.org
