Teamwork supports Foundation for the Blind

Jun 30 | 2019

At the end of 2018, Teamwork International Moving committed to support The Fundação Dorina Nowill (Dorina Nowill Foundation for the Blind) with logistics, transportation and labour to collect, separate and distribute books to blind children in Brazil.

books for blindTeamwork collects the books, written in Braille, from the printing company and takes them to its warehouse for separating into different subjects.  They are then distributed to post offices for sending to schools all over the country.

The Fundação Dorina Nowill has worked to support blind children in Brazil for the last 70 years. Mrs Nowill became blind when she turned 17 and became the Ambassador for all blind children in Brazil. She specialised at the Teachers College at Columbia University in New York and later got support from the WK Kellogg Foundation who supplied all the machinery to print the Braille books in Brazil.
