During the one-day workshop, the participants were imparted training as how to avoid being exploited on social media platforms. They were exposed to tools for ensuring cyber security.

Young Men’s Christian Association Lahore Director Haroon Rehmat was the chief guest on the occasion.

The chief guest and Young Men’s Christian Association secretary general Emanuel Sarfraz gave certificates to the participants at the end of workshop. In a statement, Rehmat said the Young Men’s Christian Association will continue to hold such programmes for the welfare of communities. He said hopefully people benefitting from them will be able to safeguard themselves in challenging times.
