Shweta Chari was having dinner with friends in 2004 when she shared an idea to create a place where children could play.

Sharing that many children are forced to be labourers at an early age, sometimes in dangerous industries such as firecrackers, the electronics engineer wanted to help them regain their childhood.

"Simple toys can make them children again," says Shweta, who later that year, with the help of her friends, founded Toybank.

The NGO provides toys and a place to play, to kids whose families can't afford to buy what many consider a luxury.
