Firts of all I hope you're well. We live in a pandemic period, in which we had to adapt to new habits, especially social coexistence. The Dorina Nowill Foundation has had its face-to-face service totally reduced in order to ensure the safety of our blind customers and employees. There was a gradual return to face-to-face and online service in August, but we will reduce it again due to the increase in cases of Covid.
During this period, the LEGO Braille Bricks project was directly impacted by being a teaching and interaction tool for blind children in public schools in Brazil. With the pandemic, schools suspended all activities, thus postponing distribution to the 2021 school year.
The LEGO Braille Bricks tools arrived in Brazil in mid-November and, therefore, we planned some deliveries for the online training with the public school teachers until the classroom return.
We have not yet reached our goal for the total distribution of the kits and more than ever we need your support and everyone.
Share our campaign with your friends and family: https://www.globalgiving.org/projects/braille-bricks-a-toy-for-blind-children-literacy/. Be responsible for maintaining the smile of inclusion in Brazil and in the world. Hope is the light of darkness.
