Awarding of winners and finalists of the international Quality Innovation Award was held in Tel Aviv (Israel), in February 2020. According to the results of the competition, M.

A series of board educational lotto games “Portrait of Bashkortostan” is designed for socialization and development of skills of children, adults, and people with visual impairment.

The mentor of the project is Ekaterina Savelyeva, associate professor of the Department of Theories and Methods of Primary Education of the Pedagogics Institute BSPU.
The “Portrait of Bashkortostan” was supported by three federal grants. The projects implemented in 2017-2019 resulted in the distribution of lotto games and the training of these games of more than 7,000 people (of which 3,000 were visually impaired).
