NGO Profile :
Children Toy Foundation (CTF) was set up in 1982 with the aim to educate children through play, help them acquire required skills, and develop a positive attitude towards life. Their activities benefit between 6,000 - 7,000 children in Mumbai, Baroda, and Allahabad. 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 has a network of 298 toy libraries in schools, orphanages, womens homes, senior citizen homes and hospitals all over the country.

The Foundation’s main corporate supporters are Larsen & Toubro, Tech Mahindra Foundation and Vibha Inc. (USA).

Major activities include:

  • Toy and Games libraries: CTF runs its own projects vide its seven Mobile play vans and two Khel-Vigyan centers (play centers) at Mumbai and Baroda. The NGO serves 32 Municipal schools in Mumbai, one school in Baroda, and children located in 20 village schools around Allahabad.  At times they visit construction sites, slums, and hospitals on weekends. During the year, CTF set up 10 new Toy and Games libraries in various locations. Records are kept of children attending the Toy Library Class.
  • Summer Camps: From April to June every year, Summer Camps are organised in Mumbai and Baroda, where various activities and games are conducted like crafts, puppet shows, drawing, coffee painting, sand painting, warli painting, nip painting, flower making, greeting card, skating etc. In FY16, Larsen & Toubro decided to work with private schools in slums and selected 4 schools to work with. Tech Mahindra Foundation proposed a partnership at Durga Devi Municipal school for Computer Training and other activities with their volunteers.    
  • Events: On the occasion of World Children Day, a press conference was organized to brief the project of 36 Mobile Khel-Vigyan vans in 36 states. The staff members are taken on a picnic annually. Every academic year, CTF organises various inter-school and inter-college contests. It also organises marathons and actively participates in the Standard Chartered Mumbai Marathon regularly.

CTF’s dream is to set up one Toy/Games Library and supply one Mobile Play Van in each state and territory of India.
