The Society for Protection of Rights of Children (SPARC) is organizing a one-day workshop for media dialogue journalists and representatives on March 10.
The seminar, expected to be attended by some 30 journalists mostly from Karachi as well as from Lahore and Islamabad, is being held in the emerging harbour town of Gwadar.
The seminar is aimed at dialogue on developing Karachi as a model tobacco-free city, an important issue confronting the metropolis making it a most hazardous international city.
The SPARC, it may be recalled, was founded and registered in 1992. The idea for creating Pakistans leading child rights organization had come to fruition following a discussion between the SPARC founder, Anees Jillani, and the then UNICEF Program Officer in Islamabad.
