The nationwide lockdown and stay-at-home orders to control the spread of COVID-19 pandemic imposed in March, continue to have a menacing effect on our collective mental well-being. Isolation, uncertainty, fear, economic hardships and anxiety have gripped at-risk children the hardest. A study states that a staggering 66.6% of slum households in Maharashtra are one-room facilities that make physical distancing impossible and heighten the distress associated with it. Of the people facing these issues, 20 million are children. School shutdown has put a pause on their learning while lockdown has snatched their access to Play and safe spaces. Toybank is ensuring that children have routine-like normalcy, stay meaningfully engaged and mentally stimulated, Toybank is providing them digital #ToybankPlayAtHomeKit with games, activities and more. More than 74 PlaySheets have reached 23000 children as on 22nd May, 2020. Now, we are pulling out all stops to bring Mental Relief and Resilience to at-risk children through our 'Every Child Resilient' Campaign. This is not just a campaign but a movement that endeavors to bring into its fold every at-risk child that needs intervention. We urge you to garner enormous support to make Every Child resilient Through Play!

About Me
My name is Siya Bhanshali and I am a student at Hill Spring International School. I enjoy reading, writing and interacting with children. I identify with Toybank's aim of teaching educational, moral and ethical values to children through the medium of playing boardgames, thus effectively combining work and play. Playing these games would also develop social and communicative skills in these children, thus allowing them to solve problems and face obstacles in their lives with creative and innovative solutions. It also cultivates their mindsets to think independently.
