Theory of Change

The Toy Bank addresses the unsung Article 31 (UN Convention on the Rights of a child) states that “That every child has the right to rest and leisure, to engage in play and recreational activities appropriate to the age of the child and to participate freely in cultural life and the arts”. The children living in vulnerable circumstances in India do not have any access to toys, storybooks and educational equipment which is a very essential part in a child’s holistic development.
Moreover, government departments in India have not been able to include Article 31 entirely in the school system. Moreover, addressing 'quality' aspects of primary schools has not yet received the required attention, while the focus continues to remain largely on 'achieving quantitative target figures'. The balance between quality and quantity is more precarious than ever. Further, In India Toy Industry, 10 per cent of the toys are from the organized sector and the remaining 90 per cent from the unregulated sources, mostly plastic. A child from affluent areas often gets bored with the old toys after playing numerous times with it and wants to have a new set of toys. For old plastic toys landfills will soon be their home. Therefore, increase in carbon emission. Lastly, on one hand there are huge underutilized toys and educational aids in the hands of privileged children which are unable to reach the underprivileged.
