The games were a great success, and one boy remarked, “It was better than play station. Do children in India have play station?” However, many children living in remote indian villages do not even have a single toy, let alone play station.
Now, thanks to our new ECD program, launched in 2014 in collaboration with the French association Inter’lude , children one to six years old in our 18 partner villages in India will have access to toys and educational games in the Angawadi Centers (pre-school centers). Funds raised at the MayFest will go toward financing the purchase of these toys and games.
