Toy Library & Time-to-Learn Program

“Almost all creativity involves purposeful play.” – Abraham Maslow

In partnership with Philippine Toy Library and Books for the Barrios, we provide a safe space for children where they can play, read, and write. The Toy Library is a venue where children can learn important social skills and form experiences that are crucial to their holistic development. The Time-to-Learn program provides fun learning activities and basic literacy tutorials for children aged 4 to 6 years old. This program helps them to prepare for formal schooling.

Before the pandemic, we did it every Monday to Friday, after the feeding program but now, in this new normal mode of learning, the lessons and activities are given to the children through printed modules.


You can still help us bring them joy! We continue to accept donations of good-quality used toys, games, puzzles, dress-up items (hats, accessories, fashion jewelries), globes, building blocks, dolls, children books and magazines, and activity modules for groups of children.
