Toys/Games Library and one Mobile Play Van in each state and territory of India.
  • Each child is born with different behaviour and nature. Children if given proper and appropriate opportunity to play according to their age, they develop into a more expressive and creative individual. But unfortunately, there are children who are deprived of their childhood; there are children whose parents cannot even afford a meal and opportunity to primary basic knowledge. Children Toy Foundation (CTF) believes that play and mental activities are important for children and it seeks to build socio-emotional skills, self-esteem and confidence in them.
  • CTF runs its own projects vide its 2 static Khelvigyan centres and 7 mobile vans through which it serves 33 Municipal schools in Mumbai, one school in Baroda and children located in 20 village schools around Allahabad. The centres operate in such a way that every class gets one hour of playtime twice a week. CTF has a network of 298 toy libraries in schools, orphanages, womens homes, senior citizen homes and hospitals all over the country. Their activities benefit between 6000-7000 children in Mumbai, Baroda, and Allahabad.
  • In future, CTF plans to launch a Khiloana Palace, a giant playhouse where toys/games are in constant motion. They also plan to set up a toys/games development centre to invent and innovate different toys, set up at least one model Khelvigyan centre and one mobile van in each state and territory of India.
