Millions of children around the world are growing up hungry, hurting, and without a home. Many people are responding to this need, yet they are often working alone, struggling to find enough staff, money, and time. Viva are all about helping those people work together, combining their efforts so that ultimately more children can be reached. If the projects join together in a network, and share their skills, their strengths, and their knowledge, they have a much better chance of effecting lasting change in the communities in which they work.
Viva have Regional Centres on 4 continents, and are working with 43 different networks of children’s projects, reaching over 1 million children worldwide. In Latin America their Regional Centre is supporting 36 networks, and working with more than 3000 projects and churches who rescue, rehabilitate, and reintegrate street kids. Toybox is involved with the networks in Guatemala, Bolivia, Peru and El Salvador.
Viva ensure that the people and projects they work with are properly trained and well supported, so that the care they offer children is of the highest quality. Working in partnership with them means that Toybox is able to help even greater numbers of street children in a lasting way.
