ONE-DOLLAR-SPECTACLES CHANGING LIVES A SOCIAL ENTERPRISE THAT COMBINES A SOCIAL MISSION WITH INNOVATIVE THINKING
Since I was little, I always wanted to change the world. Wanted to make it a better place. Looking at current events, a better world is not quite in sight.
Even though, one person I really look up to is Martin Aufmuth (www.martin-aufmuth.de).
Martin came up with a simple, yet brilliant idea: the One-Dollar-Spectacle.
What’s so special?
Martin and his team manufactured the One-Dollar-Spectacles with a simple, non-electrical plastic bending machine and started to supply spectacles to Uganda from 2012. Since then they supplied thousands of people with the One-Dollar-Spectacle!
What’s the benefit?
The good thing is that he trains the locals to make their own.
Some people just can’t afford an optometrist and don’t have health insurance. “The only thing that distinguishes us is the place of our birth.”
says Martin Aufmuth, a genuine cool dude.
