What is this?

A Toy Library or “Ludoteca”, is a children recreational centre that makes available different toys for use in the same place or to borrow them for a certain period of time.

Our Goal

At Tepui we aim to engage children both in Switzerland and in Venezuela and create and exchange that generates a learning at both ends: children in Switzerland are made aware of the initiative and what is happening with the toys donated. They experience sharing at a global level, that toys can be reused for others and learn about other cultures. In Venezuela, children learn to be trusted (lending a toy to take home is a complete new concept) as they take responsibility and care about the toys. Global sharing and reusability of things becomes familiar while they experience new toys and learn through playing. There is a strong focus on positive values that go beyond the pedagogic effects of playing.

How does it work?
