“My parents told me that I fell down at the age of 3 and became physically disabled.  I couldn’t walk and I used my knees for any movement and could not go to school easily like my friends. In 2001, thanks to Grarbet, I had my surgery and was able to walk with a brace and gait.    Thanks to Grarbet, I was given training at the optical workshop on how to maintain spectacles and later employed as an assistant and got further training by optometrists who came from abroad.  After a series of intensive trainings, I specialized in producing spectacles.  I am now walking with no limitations.  I go to school.  I am supporting not only my family but others as well.”   Abenet is now Grarbet’s successful optical workshop technician.
