Challenge

Some children in poor countries, such as the Dominican Republic, will never get the chance to own a toy in their lifetime. Play is an important part of childhood development. It helps them learn new skills and concepts, such as self-esteem, social skills, and problem solving. Our foundation will collect funds to provide toys for 3 groups of children in this country.

Solution

We will distribute toys to 4 groups of children, total of 200 children, in the Dominican Republic. This will encourage these children to play and improve areas such as social skills and intelligence. The Mencia Foundation will target children who otherwise would not receive a toy this Christmas.

Long-Term Impact

Toys stimulate imagination, brain development, self-esteem, social skills, etc. It is our hope that by providing toys for children this year, we will impact the children's well-being long-term.
