“Sanrakshika” has played a major role in enabling the CISF officers and jawans to carry out their duties with utmost sincerity in a stress free environment. It is a significant part of CISF and I feel honoured to shoulder the responsibility as President “Sanrakshika”. It has been a humbling experience to connect with women of extra-ordinary talent and creativity. The commitment, dedication and professionalism of “Sanrakshika” members towards achievement of the goals and objectives of “Sanrakshika” is commendable.
I am aware about the challenges faced by the CISF wives, while their spouses are away on duty at different locations of the country. “Sanrakshika” has been the bulwark of CISF families. Our prime focus should be to create a positive environment for the CISF families.
“Sanrakshika” has an illustrious history of contributing to the overall development of the families including career counselling for the wards, merit awards for excellence in sports and academics, financial assistance to specially abled children, cultural and sports activities for the families and providing a platform of opportunities through skill development centres etc. It gives me great pride to say that many children of the CISF family have found their place in the Civil Services, other professional fields, and in big firms in the private sector.
“Sanrakshika” has also helped a large number of needy people by setting up Night Shelters in hospitals, distribution of warm clothing during winter and through visits to old age homes and orphanages.The Skill Development Centres have also provided skill training to members of the public from the adjoining areas. These skills have enabled them to earn their livelihood.
I believe that Women’s Empowerment stands for empowering the women to take independent decisions and actions based on their own abilities and wisdom. My priority would be to broaden the horizon of our members and focus on all round development of families. Needless to say, "Sanrakshika" will reach greater heights only with greater involvement and support of each "Sanrakshika" member.
Let us join our hands together in order to deepen the bonds of the CISF family and to create more opportunities to further it’s progress and development. I am sure that together we shall continue to achieve new heights.
