    Project description

    Mobile Khelvigyan is education and entertainment through Play under supervision of dedicated, trained staff. Earlier in 1997 Children Toy Foundation (CTF) used to arrange play sessions in the evening for street children around its office at Fort, Mumbai. Everyday around 30-40 children from the surrounding used to come here to play. Prompted by this overwhelming response & in its quest to reach out to more children at distant places, we had the idea of developing a mobile service which has today grown to large project. The van was named as LAFF van (Let's All have Fun & Frolic). LAFF van has helped to propagate the toy library project in Northern states of India all the way up to Jammu & Kashmir. Godrej Ltd & many Lion's Clubs had sponsored the trip. The LAFF van has been to 162 villages of Latur District & to an equal number off villages in Nashik district on sponsorship of Excel Industries Ltd. We were invited by Nutan Balshiksan Sangh Parivar to travel with our toy van from Kosbad (Maharashtra) to Bhavnagar (Gujarat) for the celebration of Amrit Mahotsava of Nutan Balshikhsan Sangh. It has given a wake-up call to several educational institutions and to leaders who have a better future for children in their minds & hearts. It has made them come out of their comfort zone & join the movement. We have provided guidance & training to Vidyarambam Trust, Chennai, to design two such vans for the benefit of Tsunami-affected children. They are working with an NGO which would like to make two vans, and even Healing Hands Women's Organization, Sri Lanka is planning a mobile toy van service under our guidance. LAFF van helped CTF get access to many donors who were inspired to set up toy libraries at different places. The colorful vans easily lure the imagination of the children. On the body of the van there are many games painted & more than a hundred children can play with magnetic counters in groups. The van has lots of toys & games which are both educational & entertaining. There are specially designed games for groups. The specially designed group game on the van is an open invitation for a number of children to come together.The van has an in built video system for viewing educational video films & also for playing video games. Occasionally puppet & magic shows are performed to engage & entertain children. It has a projector for big screen viewing so that a larger number of children are able to see and mike system for children to interact with each other with jokes, poems, etc. The van stacks around 300 toys and other games along with hobby kits of stamps, coins, cards, etc. The budget of the program is Rs22 crores which is a very optimistic one, given that the income of CTF in FY15 was Rs17 lakhs. The program budget is Rs60.98 lakhs per van, for 36 vans. The budget per van includes one-time cost Rs25.85 lakhs (Tata van,fabrication of van,content development,toys/books/TV), recurrring expense Rs20.42 lakhs (salary,fuel), office expenses Rs14.71 lakhs
