Team Muhafiz brings together 10 multi-ethnic, interfaith adolescent heroes at a local ‘youth centre’. Together, they combat villains that embody present-day, local-level injustices, radicalism, and key social, economic and development challenges. Team Muhafiz stories to date bring the sensitive and difficult concepts of environmental degradation, especially deforestation and unchecked urban development, child rights, especially child marriages, corruption, and violence against women to the consciousness of young people across Pakistan. Interspersed with the content are activities and actions that encourage youth to ‘get involved’ in making a difference.
Team Muhafiz was shortlisted as the Official Nominee for National Innovation Award 2015 in Art & Design category by the Pakistan Innovation Foundation.
