Self-employed and independent

After training the craftsmen work independently and responsibly. By selling the glasses for the equivalent of 2 to 7 US-Dollars, they can cover their material costs and earn enough to feed themselves and their families.

Formerly unemployed people thus often obtain a new perspective. The production of the glasses can be done at home. In particular, women can work and at the same time take care of their children.
