Working with the South African Department of Health, Cotlands set up mobile toy libraries which were to be attached to mobile health clinics. As the clinics would go to rural communities to offer immunisations and health checks, children would have the opportunity to play. Play is vital for cognitive development in children. Between ages 0-2 years old, the cognitive foundation for learning throughout one’s life is set. Lancaster Foundation funded one mobile toy library. However due to COVID, the mobile toy facilities have been paused until further notice.
