An awareness seminar for school-children on the use of iodized salt for better physical and mental health was held in Islamabad, Pakistan. The seminar was organized by the Network for Consumer Protection with the support of UNICEF, and it was attended by a large number of female students at the Islamabad Model School for Girls G-8/4.
Earlier the TN Team trained the teachers at the Women Welfare and Development Centre (WWDC) to become active advocates of iodized salt. "I have learnt that children and young people have the ability and ideas to create the changes that they want to see in society – and they actively utilize their rights to do so. Children are the young ambassadors to amplify health related messages," said Ms. Rubina Bhatti, Project Coordinator TN.
