SPARC is an independent non-governmental organization registered as a society in Pakistan in December 1992 and has been working exclusively on child related issues since then, drawing inspiration from the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. SPARC was established to act as an advocacy group for child rights. From its initial focus on protecting breastfeeding against the marketing of baby milks and foods, SPARC expanded its work to include other issues such as child labor, juvenile justice, education and violence against children. SPARC has also from time to time taken up issues that ultimately affect the condition of children in this country, such as corruption, freedom of association and the ?myth or reality? of NGOs.
