Mission

Our mission is to end the injustice of children living and working on the streets

 

Toybox's aims

  • to promote a just world, where all children are valued
  • to ensure that even the most marginalised street children can access their rights, receive an education and enjoy a safe and happy childhood

 

Toybox's objectives

  • to significantly reduce the number of children living and working on the streets in cities across the world

 

History

Established in 1992, Guatemala City was the first place Toybox started working.  We are still there today, working with children who are living or working on the streets.  Our msission is unchanged from those early days.

In 2005 the organisation extended its geographical reach and we are now working in 5 countries in Latin America together as well as Kenya and India since 2015.

In the year to 31 March 2015 over 15,500 children received support through Toybox funded programmes.

 

Motivation

Our Christian faith defines who we are and how we behave.  The motivation of our work iwth street children is a direct result of the teachings and examples of Jesus as recorded in the Bible. 

Our Christian believe inspires and motivated us to engage with everyone, both with those who have a faith and with those who have none, and irrespective of race, culture, gender, age or social position.
