Special needs support for blind toddlers
C. Direske from “Anderes Sehen e.V.” approached SoftMaker with the following words:
“Many thanks for your donation to Anderes Sehen e.V., which will be a great help for promoting the early support of blind children!
Really great that we have the honor of partaking in your “Load and Help” donation campaign! Fantastic commitment from you and SoftMaker!
What your donation actually makes possible:
The long canes for younger children promote early exploration of the surroundings, Klicksonar trains spatial experience and orientation in a very special manner and our tactile excitingly designed books provide important impulses for the enjoyment of reading and Braille, paving the way to education and participation..
Therefore, we are already able to do a lot for the provision of better opportunities in education and mobility. However, that doesn’t suffice. We still host a large number of ideas for the way to an inclusive society, such as Braille posters and tactile ABC cards for all schools – and we transport these to politics and society. Your donation also helps us to implement this plan – many thanks!”

Lena Kleine-Kalmer, Communications Manager at World Bicycle Relief, wrote a letter to SoftMaker Managing Director Martin Kotulla:
“Dear Martin, many thanks for your generous donation – in the name of World Bicycle Relief and the people who are now able to improve their lives under their own steam with a bicycle. Currently, all donations until the end of the year are being doubled - also the 831 EUR from you!
I have studied the SoftMaker concept and find it great! Top work - thank you for the involvement!
