About the project :

Children Toy Foundation is organizing a Marathon event at Kharghar hills to help promote the social cause of providing opportunity to underprivileged children to play with toys and learn while doing. The funds raised will go to fund the toy vans across India.

Children Toy Foundation, is a non-governmental organization which believes that no Child should be deprived of Toys; the childhood pleasure and learning tools.  The organization is working to educate children through toys, to supplement the conventional and long established techniques of reading and writing; as it’s been established through research of NASA and MIT, that ‘learn while doing’ is the best mechanism of teaching.

The NGO has been in existence for the past 32 years, and has been working to provide underprivileged kids with a chance to play with toys, which will not only be a fun factor but also aid in increasing their creativity. The organization operates Toy Vans across India that aim to bring some fun and happiness to the childhood of the underprivileged kids.



Children Toy Foundation is organizing a Marathon event on 4th October 2015. The entire money raised from this event will go towards funding more Toy Vans across India. All Participants will receive a Donation Certificate for their kind help to our Cause.
