What makes it a social enterprise?

Plush and Play aims to become the first global toy company offering safe, environmentally-friendly and educational toys for Filipinos and the world, manufactured by community partners in traditionally underprivileged and low-income areas to generate secured sources of income.

The organization emerged out of Gawad Kalinga’s Enchanted Farm, which serves as a village university, social tourism destination, and incubator of social enterprises. By supporting Plush and Play, you will support Gawad Kalinga - an organization committed to achieving its 2024 goal of ending poverty by providing housing, creating sustainable livelihoods, and developing uniquely Filipino social enterprises that will transform rural villages into strong and lasting communities.
