Our MISSION –We create greater awareness of the effects of UV sun damage on the eyes of children by informing parents, teachers and children of the imminent dangers. We encourage the habitual use of UVA and UVB protective eye wear as part of our ingrained culture, and as part of your child’s school uniform for maximum protection every day.

Most Importantly WHY WE DO IT?

We believe YOU, as a parent, have the right to protect your child from any danger that may threaten their current and future health and well-being.
