“Eyesight is a basic human right”


Study Tip by Zebraltermedical.
Quality Education is a basic human right.
For parents, take time to teach children.
If we are unable due to difficult circumstances, seek those that can help you.
At an early age, determine how your child learns best and cultivate that area.
If we bring children into the world, we must try our best to expose them to quality education.
You are your child’s first teachers.

Best wishes and be your own best self!
