Marieta shows handycraft

Marieta shows the handmade handicrafts that are sold to raise money for the needs of the AUPNE (Association for People with Special Needs). Above all, the operating costs of the clubhouse, the salaries of the teachers, etc., have to be paid. The blind people learn the Braille, – who does not know them: there are for each letter a number of points that are pressed into the paper, and then with the fingertips as small elevations (concave) to be felt. This system makes it possible to “read” texts.

Marieta describes the doll that she holds in her hand: she is dressed after the example of the girls and women from Bahia and is sold for 20.00 Reais, which corresponds to about EUR 4.34
