    Following a one day workshop organised by this African Eye Foundation to train teachers and possibly nurses to detect eye ailment in pupils and in the local community from 0-15 years which was so enriching, I wish some of of could be made “Ambassadors” of such a formation. My fervent which is to use my small nursing experience and be trained more.
