The virtual gifts that are changing lives

A warm drink and tasty meal

A warm drink and tasty meal

Your gift means that a street child in Guatemala will be 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 other 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 thanks to the kind person who gave you 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

The streets can be a dangerous place where children can easily get hurt. Thanks to the kind person who gave you this gift, street children living in Bolivia will be able to get treatment for small accidents that happen to them. Keke is one of these children living on the streets of La Paz. One day he had an accident which left him with some nasty cuts on his feet. Thankfully, he met Toybox’s partner’s outreach team who were able to disinfect his cuts and bandage him up. Thanks to this initial meeting, Keke now participates in other activities that are run in La Paz thanks to support like yours.

A sleeping pack

For street children in San Salvador, the night shelter offers them a place of safety to escape from the violence outside. Thanks to the kind person who gave you this gift, children will have a soft pillow to sleep on and a duvet to keep them warm. Marlena has been using the night shelter since it opened over a year ago. She and her young son spend many nights there as it is much safer than staying on the streets and there is support there to help her and her son to avoid some of the challenges that can arise with street living. She says, “My son is only young and I didn’t want him to be exposed to some of the scary situations that can happen on the street. Here at the night shelter, we can get a good night’s sleep and be warm.”

A Child Rights workshop

For street children around the world, access to their human and child rights is often limited. By giving this gift, you will support Toybox’s outreach work with children and their wider communities so that more people are aware of children’s rights and the important role that they can play in society. Children will be able to participate in workshops to learn about their responsibilities, how they should be treated and what they can do to share the information more widely. The will develop leadership skills and be given the opportunity to learn about how they can plan now to decide their own futures.

A birth certificate

A birth certificate

Thanks to the kind person who gave you 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!

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. Thanks to the kind person who gave you this gift, street children in Nairobi, Kenya, will be able to access 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!
