Not just a gift catalogue

By buying one or more of these gifts, you will do more than give children living on the world’s most dangerous city streets the basics they need to survive. You will also help our outreach partners find children who might otherwise be unreachable.

These gifts have been hand-picked so that Toybox-funded outreach workers can also get to know these children and help them escape the streets for good.

Whatever the time of year and whatever the celebration, the joy of giving gifts to your family and friends can now bring joy to street children around the world as well. How amazing is that?

A warm drink and tasty meal

Your gift means that a street child in Guatemala will be able to escape the cold and hunger on the streets as they enjoy some food and drink during Toybox’s outreach work. Sometimes, children like Nayeli struggle to find food to sustain them on the streets. The donation made to Toybox to celebrate your special occasion can help Nayeli and others like her to enjoy a yummy meal and a warm drink each month. This also gives them the opportunity to talk to outreach workers about anything that is bothering them and to get emotional support where they may not be able to otherwise.

A craft therapy session

Street children don’t often have many safe places to relax and have fun, but but by purchasing this gift street children in El Salvador will now be able to enjoy some art therapy and receive support for any challenges they are facing. Marla was one of these children. She has been on the streets for several years and struggles to cope with danger, violence and fear that come as a result of living on the streets. However, a couple of years ago, she met Toybox’s partner organisation in San Salvador. Now, twice a week, she and her friends meet with the outreach team in a safe space where they can relax and enjoy some time to just be creative. As well as giving them some much needed time to decompress from the tension that comes with living on the street, Marla can also talk to the outreach worker about anything that is on her mind or any problems she is having. This allows the outreach workers to support her even more.

A First Aid kit

Life on the streets is dangerous for children. Injury is common as a result of physical abuse and unsafe work. Yet street children are often denied access to the medical care they urgently need, especially if they are not registered. A first aid kit can help our outreach workers tend to children’s injuries immediately. The kit comes in an easy-to-carry bag and contains first aid essentials, such as bandages, dressings, plasters, wipes and ointments. Giving first aid and treating injuries also allows outreach workers to give children counselling to cope with the mental anguish of life on the streets.

A sleeping pack

Bedtime is not a happy time for street children. ‘Bed’ is often little more than a piece of cardboard on a cold, damp pavement. You can help a street child today by buying them a sleeping pack. This treasured possession can be carried by a child as they move from location to location to stay safe. Your gift will make a child a little more comfortable wherever they sleep at night. The sleeping pack is a short-term solution. The connection we make with through gifts like this will help find street children a safe place to live permanently.

A birth certificate

Through the purchasing of this gift, a young life in Guatemala, El Salvador or Bolivia can be turned around. Birth certificates give street children access to education and healthcare as well as a sense of identity which can greatly improve their self-esteem. Flor was one child who received her birth certificate. She had no idea when her birthday was and so when she got her birth certificate, she was allowed to choose a date to celebrate on. She was so excited that she chose the very next day! Your gift means that more children like Flor will be able to celebrate their birthday every year and will know who they are!

A sewing machine or a tool box

Vocational training aims to give street children the opportunity to develop skills which they can then take forward to use in their lives which might help them to earn a living, support their future family or build a business. Purchasing this gift will provide street children in Nairobi, Kenya, access to programmes that help to teach them vocational skills such as tailoring, mechanics and farming. Angela has already benefitted from this work. A couple of years ago, she was working on the streets and was unable to provide for her young children. However, through Toybox’s partner in Nairobi, she is now learning how to make clothes and is able to offer her services as a tailor to people in her community. This means that she is able to provide for her children and they can now go to school!
