You want to start yourself in the spirit of Toe to Heart? Good plan! On our Toetoheartworld.com website we will highlight new small initiatives. Our advice: Just make a small start and show others what you’re doing and what you want! If you keep it small you don’t need to start a whole NGO yourself. We could cooperate.
In 2004 when we wanted to start and only got a basic plan we got help from two cyclists cycling from The Netherlands to China. They were looking for a goal to raise money for and chose Toe to Heart. They believed in us and gave us a start budget. That enabled us to set up an after school care provision and tp get to know the children and their needs. We selected the ones which needed our help most and with whom we had a click to give more support.
Also toys and school material were sent from abroad. Our only child grew up with many kids around her. It really can contribute to your family. We took care of more than 25 children from 8 to 18 years but you can also keep it smaller. Contact us if you look for advice in setting up your own small initiative.
