Educational toys for children


There’s nothing unproductive about playtime.

Learning through play is proven to help infants learn important social and cognitive skills, but for communities living in poverty access to these overlooked resources is rare – meaning their children’s development suffers.

Your gift could provide engaging educational toys and games that will help 50 young children learn important lessons that will support their future education.

How it works

Each alternative gift includes a beautiful postcard recognising the contribution made in the recipient's name. It describes how the gift will support education in the communities we work with.

  • Choose an alternative gift
  • If you'd like your gift sent directly to a friend: add a personal message in the box below (to be handwritten on your behalf), then tell us their address on the next page
  • Or, we can deliver a blank card straight to you, so you can add your own greeting

All of our gifts represent aspects of real long-term projects in rural Africa. As the need for funding and support can change within each community we partner with, your gift will be used wherever it is needed most.
