With the help of our passionate LEGO® employees, we aim to leverage the transformational power of learning through play to inspire and develop children. Our local community engagement program currently operates in 31 countries, and we are working hard to expand it even further. The program relies on our employees in each country volunteering to help create projects to inspire children. These projects meet local needs, provide opportunities to local children, and leverage the skills and interests of local employees to have the greatest impact on the lives of children.
Build the Change
Gives children an opportunity to express their creative solutions to making the world a better place by building their ideas with LEGO bricks. The focus is the environment, the future of learning and child-friendly cities.
LEGO® Braille Bricks in China
We have made significant progress in China with our LEGO® Braille Bricks, a play-based methodology that teaches braille to children who are blind or have visual impairment. We have reached hundreds of special educations schools with tailored trainings, Braille Bricks sets, and toolkits across 30 provincial administrative districts - and in the process training over 600 educators/caretakers.
Prescription for Play in the U.S. and China
Prescription for Play is a program China that is delivered by pediatricians and other trusted medical advisors during well-baby visits to parents of children aged 18 – 36 months. Through the program, we promote the importance of play for children’s development and ultimately embed learning through play into pediatric care. In China, we have distributed more than half a million LEGO® DUPLO® play sets to help healthcare centres include play in their paediatric services.
Build to Give
The holiday season should be a time of joy and festive cheer, but for many children and families, it can be difficult. Through the LEGO Group, families and fans can join the Build to Give campaign by building and sharing holiday ornaments. For every ornament displayed in-store or shared online, we donate a LEGO set to a child in need of play.
Established in 2021, the network now consists of 17 children's and science museums across the U.S. The museums are dedicated to embedding Learning through Play experiences for children and caregivers in their exhibits and programs, and developing high impact programming for underserved children through reciprocal partnerships with community organizations.
