Children Toy Foundation (CTF), a Mumbai
based charitable trust, commenced its operations in 1982. It aims to provide a toy library for the poor and deprived children, in order to stimulate creativity and spontaneity and to train core values like discipline, honesty, truth and courage. The foundation has started toy libraries in orphanages, schools, crèches, industrial and business establishments, mentally retarded institutions and physically handicapped institutions all over India. Volunteers also visit hospitals to entertain sick children with toys, games, stories and films. On the spot games contests are conducted at interschool level.
