I wish you to be well and healthy.
In this first semester, the Dorina Nowill Foundation for the Blind faced a major challenge with the increase in cases of Covid 19 in Brazil, which impeded our face-to-face work on many fronts, but this did not discourage us, as we knew that "you" were in supporting this time.
Since March, the Dorina Foundation acted quickly in favor of helping our customers, blind people and people with low vision, in vulnerable situations. We carried out a fundraising campaign for the purchase of food cards for 100 customers. Amazing!
In addition to all this care for our customers, the Lego Braille Bricks Program continued with the online training of teachers on the didactics and interactions that the Lego product can provide to children.
We held some important lives for employees, partner organizations and the general public with the participation of the president of the Braille Bricks Brazil Program, Ika Fleury, in order to present the program and value the strategies created by various professionals aimed at serving people with disabilities during the pandemic. We also created activities aimed at addressing the issue of remote learning for students with visual impairments. It was amazing! Everyone is excited about this inclusion tool.
Another novelty is that we now have an exclusive hotsite for the Lego Braille Bricks Program, which will not only allow access to content, but also to download materials and send messages for information requests about execution, partnership, use and spoken versions of materials.
And do you remember the students Gabi and Lara from Graded, The American School of São Paulo? They helped our cause a lot by publicizing the Campaign on GlobalGiving. In addition, the action led by them appeared in the school yearbook as an example of "best practices developed by students in the year 2020/2021." ! It's cute, isn't it?
And all this was only possible because “you” were with us all the time! Your contribution is a great gift for people who are blind and have low vision.
We also count on your support in this challenging time that we are going through...!
