Mobile Toy Library
Romanipen is an organization with a mission to engage the Roma population in an effort to improve their lives. One program that they launched with considerable success is the Toy Library in Kragujevac: a place where parents can bring their children to socialize and play with one another in a fun environment.
The Toy Library has a variety of educational toys that children are able to play with and enjoy.
When a family utilizes the facility, it gives Romanipen a chance to earn their trust and hopefully, gives workers a chance to build relationships with this very vulnerable demographic.To help them with their cause, the NDF donated 12,000 EUR to Romanipen for both new toys and for the purchase of a van that will enable the Toy Library to have a mobile counterpart. Now, underserved children in rural areas will also have access to the benefits of the program.
