Apart from the Seplaa YLCI being the first of its kind in Pakistan, it is being run by three very special young sisters Amal Farooq Malik (15) and Dina Farooq Malik (14) since 2012, when they were just 9 and 7 years old respectively. Since 2019, their 7 year old sister Zaina Farooq Malik has also joined to strengthen the Children’s Voice Blog of the Seplaa YLCI.
Both Amal and Dina wanted to continue the community work they started through their Club when they were just 5 years old and 3 1/2 years old respectively. They have been active volunteers in several SEPLAA Foundation activities including flood relief, environment activities and taking part in activities at the SEPLAA Foundation adopted school since 2010. It was only natural that they wanted to have a space of their own to express themselves and give back to the children of Pakistan.
