Production on-site

The OneDollarGlasses are produced by the local people on a specially designed bending machine. This bending machine is the core of the concept of OneDollarGlasses. It requires no electrical power and is virtually maintenance-free, so it works in every however remote African village. During a 14-day intensive training men and women are trained to work as OneDollarGlasses optician, so that they can start their own business.
