More than just glasses

The new website documents the training of specialists and employees on site, who have to meet high standards when manufacturing and fitting the glasses. Quality management is the prerequisite for ensuring that the teams in the program countries continue to develop and can respond even better to the needs of the local people.

Contributing to 11 sustainability goals

Sustainability plays a central role in the organization. In addition to the vision of giving people access to education and work through better eyesight, OneDollarGlasses are produced locally, skilled workers are trained and permanent jobs are created. Vanessa Cognard, Head of Communications at EinDollarBrille association, emphasizes: "With our new website, we want to show how our fields of action are linked to the various projects in order to give people a sustainable perspective and make a contribution to the United Nations 2030 Agenda. We cordially invite everyone to get to know the idea of GoodVision and find out more about our work."

About EinDollarBrille association

According to a study by the World Health Organization (WHO), over 950 million people need glasses but cannot afford them or have no access to optical care. The consequences: Children are unable to follow lessons at school and adults are unable to take on any or any qualified work in order to provide for their families.

We want to change that.

The non-profit association was founded in 2012 by Martin Aufmuth, the inventor of the OneDollarGlasses. These glasses, with a material value of around one US dollar, are manufactured by local people in the program countries and sold for two to three days' wages. The training of local specialists and the establishment of local organizations are financed by donations. The proceeds from the sale of the glasses help to cover the salaries in the country and the materials for new glasses. The aim is to provide permanent basic eye care for all people in cooperation with the local authorities.
