Mr. Asif Khawaja of SMILE was the organizer and keynote speaker; he was joined by AHL team at Karachi, CTO officer at Lahore and Engr Agha at Islamabad. By use of videos and explaining through multimedia presentation the interest of participants was kept alive throughout. Special subject of caring for Pakistan and working for preparing better Pakistan for next generations was appreciated by all.
