On December 09th 2015 IYAAT Pakistan chapter was officially announced at Larkana Sindh Pakistan.
We arranged inauguration ceremony of IYAAT Chapter along with a workshop on ‘’Brave Pakistan against Terrorism’’ at a well-known reputable institute in Pakistan ‘’SZABIST Larkana Sindh Pakistan’’ Shaheed Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto Istitute of Science and Technology’’
The number of people in attendance was 130 and there were a total of 3 speakers from Pakistan who conducted sessions on different topics.
We also arranged an online session with the IYAAT Vice President. Ms. Faith Mulenga via SKYPE. She conducted session on the ‘’How can youth counter the terrorism’’ the event was totally of 3 hours in which youth become motivated by the speakers and later they become ready for counter terrorism. The important thing of the workshop was audience were very happy to welcome IYAAT in Pakistan because the allegations which people of Pakistan are facing in the name of Terrorism and Taliban are totally wrong and all the youth wants to prove from this International platform that we the Pakistanis are not terrorists. We are Pakistanis so IYAAT is the best platform for the youth to discuss these talks that we are not terrorists.
Ms. Ghazalla Paras Shaikh Principal of SZABIST Institute gave welcome speech to the team of IYAAT and said that she is very happy that IYAAT is opening their Pakistan chapter from her institute so this was an honor for her.
In the end, shields and certificates were distributed among the team and participants of the workshop.
The event was covered and reported in the newspaper of city as well.
