Project presented in Belém
Mrs. Cavaco Silva received, in audience, the President of the Leiria Polytechnic Institute (IPL) Dr. Nuno Mangas, and the officer responsible for the respective Resource Centre for Digital Inclusion, Dr. Célia Sousa, who made a presentation of the project “A Thousand Toys for a Thousand Smiles”.
The aim of the project is to transform simple electronic toys into a “special toy” in order for these to be used by children with special needs.
The adaptation of these toys is committed to a group of voluntary students and teachers from the IPL’s Department of Electro Technical Engineering, who will forward them to institutions that house such children.
