Market of Implementation

  • India


In India, 40% of children are at risk of losing out on healthy and happy childhoods. The nation faces alarming issues like:

  • 33 million child laborers under the age of 18
  • 1 in 4 children dropping out of school
  • increase in crimes against children by 500%
  • frequent migration

If this problem goes unaddressed, this would deprive children of age-appropriate growth, adversely affecting their mental well-being. It is evident that there is a pressing need to promote mental health and socio-emotional development for children, and Toybank has the solution for this.


At Toybank, we aim to address the issue of mental health and socio-emotional development in at-risk children in the following ways:

  • Partnerships- To engage with children from vulnerable communities, we partner with government schools, shelter homes, community-based organizations and NGOs.

  • Curated Play Sessions-Play2Learn Sessions involves board games and play activities curated for children to have safe, engaging and joyful play experiences crucial to their development.

  • Impact- To date, we have created an impact in 56,000+ children through 400+ Play Centers, we strive to change every at-risk child's perspective towards life in their adulthood.
