Toybox offers a unique way to support children who are at the very dangerous and precarious fringes of street life and those who have already been rescued from living on the streets; those children who have started their slow and often painful journey back to a life away from the streets.
Our Child Ambassador programme gives you a window into the lives of these virtually invisible children by linking you with a child. Our Child Ambassador programme allows a personal connection with one child who in turn opens the gate to so many more unnamed, unseen and unwanted street children who so desperately need our help – today.
The Child Ambassador programme is all about giving street connected children the opportunity to represent their peer group within their wider community while learning essential life skills. Every Child Ambassador is elected by their peers to represent their project. On average they will take on the ambassadorial role for their project for around 18 months to two years. At this point the children within the project will meet to hold an election to vote in a new Child Ambassador.
When the Child Ambassador has completed their time in the role, or similarly if they move on from the project, we will always keep you informed. We will then link you with another Child Ambassador where the need is greatest.
Your support of street children, through the Child Ambassador programme is helping Toybox to respond to street connected children where the need is greatest.
