Dorina Nowill Foundation For The Blind co-founded The Braille Bricks project that helps and assist blind children to learn to read through play. Each block is handled like a toy by blinds, although for the benefit for the blind children, each block features one Braille letter.

So far, the São Paulo based organization has only manufactured enough bricks for 300 students, but through the Creative Commons, they hope more will be made.
