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?

Birth certificate

£32 Learn more and buy

Birth certificate

A birth certificate can help protect a child for the rest of their life. When a child does not officially exist, they have no legal rights and are exposed to some of the worst forms of abuse. Traffickers kidnap them. Gangs recruit them. Abusers assault them. And the police, who should protect them, beat them and scare them. By buying a street child their birth certificate, you can help protect them from these dangers and ensure they can access the services they need to survive on the streets right now. As well as keeping them safe today, when you buy a child a birth certificate you open the door to a lifetime of opportunities – away from the streets.

Warm winter bundle

£38 Learn more and buy

Warm winter bundle

A warm winter bundle can protect children from freezing temperatures. Unprotected from the harsh seasonal weather, many street children will struggle to keep warm this winter. Winter is an especially difficult time for children on the streets, particularly those who lack any kind of shelter. Children who work rag-picking during the day sometimes use their collection sacks to shield from cold winter nights or huddle up with friends to help keep the cold away. A winter sets in, your gift will provide a child on the streets with a warm winter bundle including a hot drink and nutritious meal, blankets, a hygiene kit to keep themselves clean, and winter clothing including a coat, hat and socks to protect them from the bitter cold. When our frontline workers hand out warm winter bundles to street children, some of whom will be surviving their first winter alone on the streets this year, children can see there is someone who wants to help and be there for them.

Clean clothes

Clean clothes

Clean clothes can start a child's journey away from the streets. Street children usually only have one set of clothes to wear every day. This is humiliating, leads to people viewing them as dirty and causes discrimination. A set of clean clothes including socks, a jumper, a coat and a woollen hat - can keep a child warm and improve their self-esteem. What’s more, when a child comes for a set of clean clothes, they can tell us what they need from us to help them leave the streets for good.

Craft therapy session

Craft therapy session

A craft therapy session will provide a street child with a much-needed safe space. Street children don’t often have many places to relax and have fun – the streets are full of dangers that force them to assume the roles and responsibilities of adults much too soon. Your gift will offer children the chance to relax, make new friends and be creative – in a safe space where they can share their feelings and experiences with each other and trusted adults. During craft therapy sessions, children can talk to frontline workers about anything that is on their mind and work through any problems they are having.

First aid kit

First aid kit

A first aid kit can help us talk to street children about their other problems. 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 frontline 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 frontline workers to give children counselling to cope with the mental anguish of life on the streets.

Hygiene kit

£11 Learn more and buy

Hygiene kit

A hygiene kit will show a street child that someone cares. Living on the streets without basic sanitation leaves children exposed to many illnesses. This is made worse by the fact that they have no access to medicine, and many are refused access to doctors or hospitals. So, prevention is key. When you buy a child a hygiene kit, which includes soap, toothpaste, shampoo and a comb, you can help them stay clean, healthy and protected from disease. When we give these basic items, children also see that there are people who genuinely care about their health and well-being.

Smart school uniform

£14 Learn more and buy

Smart school uniform

A smart school uniform can offer a street child a chance for a better future. In many of the countries Toybox works in, children cannot attend school without a proper school uniform. When a family's income is stretched, sending a child to school can have a negative impact on household income if that child is then not working. The associated costs such as uniforms can also often be out of many family's reach. Your gift today will help us work with families to help them understand the importance of education and their children attending school. Providing a school uniform to a street child could be the difference between them starting school, or missing out on education altogether.
