Toys

SEP designs toys that help children learn cognitive, motor, sensory and logical thinking skills. To acquire these skills is an important step towards independence in daily life, e.g. for dressing and eventually for scholar activities.

The proceeds from the toy sales will go towards supporting children with special needs from low income families in our projects in Kenya.
