Cool, thanks for the share. Yes, in my exprience there will be lots of donations; which is nice and may come in handy: Although the focus will remain on locally produced toys, we could think of a combination of donated and locally fabricated toys: Cheers Susanne

Dear Chioma, yes, I think Hand to Hearts' curriculum is just what we need. We had a Skype last week - also for another idea launched by Dr Aung Hein from VSO Myanmar. Check his idea. If possible we could combine the Hands to Heart training for both these projects. Are you very familiar with HHI's curriculum?

Tino, thanks for thinking with us, and you are very right. In fact, that is the ideas, the 'librarian' will be trained in parenting skills and provide information about nutrition, hygiene etc. We maybe working with Hands to Hearts (see www.handtohearts.org) who do just that: empowering women and caregivers with the skills to nurture their children, through a train-the-trainer approach. This is how our Toy Library ideas links to 3 mission of this challenge: parenting skills, creativity and play and networking. Thanks!
