Free Toys For Life Foundation’s mission is to provide children with the ability to build their own toys for free. We have developed safe ways for children to build their own toys using everyday items found around the average household.
The primary resource in our toy building is rubbish. We don’t like the idea of rummaging around in the trash because that is pretty filthy. Therefore we adopt and encourage a mindset of not putting useful items in the bin in the first place.
This is the perfect opportunity to incentivize a positive behavioral change in children at an early age where the person's attitude is focused on ‘REUSE’ rather than ‘WASTE’. By adopting our techniques children are able to develop meaningful skills that are the foundations of careers in game design, animation, architecture, engineering and more.
Better yet, because our toys are primarily made of trash, that means the more toys we make the less trash there is in the environment.
Please help support our mission. Every donation we receive goes towards furthering our toy building techniques, developing more open source designs and providing workshops & toy building kits to children in previously disadvantaged low-income communities around South Africa.
