about

After 20 years of working to establish our own project, we have recognized the value of small, similar initiatives worldwide connecting and supporting one another. In 2004, we visited Estrela da Favela in Rio de Janeiro, which provides education and sports for underprivileged children aged 4 to 14, and we were deeply impressed by their work.

Some of the initiatives we collaborate with focus solely on local efforts and do not have English websites. We still find it beneficial to showcase their work. One such example is Stichting Ouders voor Ouders.

We believe it's important to extend our focus beyond our own projects and reach out to other organizations. This enriches our lives and highlights the many smaller organizations that deserve recognition. By creating a Toe to Heart World community, we can help these groups be seen and heard, providing them with the support they need.

If you're interested to become part of The Toe To Heart mission, then please contact us. In addition, if you are interested in setting up your own small Toe to Heart project, by providing small material and immaterial aid to one or more children, then we would love to hear from you. We believe that every child who receives a proper education helps bridge the gap between rich and poor. Often, an educated child can uplift an entire family and benefit multiple generations.

Toe To Heart is a work in progress that will continue to develop over time. 

Gaining a clear and deeper understanding of the cultural differences adn challenges we face wehen helping children with their development is crucial. 

There are, for example in India, significant disparities in how girls are treated compared to boys. Cultural norms and societal expectations often limit girls' access to education and opportunities. Similarly, children with disabilities face unique obstacles that hinder their educational development and inclusion in mainstream society.

By recognizing and addressing these specific challenges, we can create more effective and inclusive educational programs. Our goal is to ensure that every child, regardless of gender or ability, receives the support and resources they need to thrive.

Approaching these challenges with cultural sensitivity and consideration, we aim to bridge these gaps and provide equitable educational opportunities. As we progress, we hope to learn from these experiences and refine our approach to better serve children worldwide.
