Ethiopia

The multi-ethnic state of Ethiopia, with its approximately 94 million inhabitants who belong to 90 different tribes is one of the poorest countries in the world. According to a United Nations report of 2013 about one third of Ethiopians have to live on less than one Euro per day. Since the end of 2013, OneDollarGlasses together with our partner organization "Partnership with Alem Katema Vaterstetten/Germany " has become active in Ethiopia. The sales of our glasses have officially been launched in early May 2014 at the hospital Alem Katema. An extension of the project is in the planning.
