Lilian Oloo
Founder of the toy library

Nairobi, Kenya
My task is to make educational toys accessible and popularize playful forms of education. I didn’t just found the first toy library in Kenya but also launched a digital platform for kids and their parents where users can share information about the methods of children’s development.

Thanks to this project, I became the Advocate of the UN Global School Program for Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN) in support of the UNESCO Global Action Program for Education for Sustainable Development.

As part of the toy library, we educate children who can’t go to the kindergarten for whatever reason through the medium of games, tell about education through games to other teachers, buy developmental toys and games for struggling kindergartens, and promote this concept among parents.
