Dera Sacha Sauda Welfare Works Dedicated to Women's Well-Being

Continuing with the unabated, unstoppable massive and inclusive welfare activities towards Humanity and the environment, Dera Sacha Sauda has not let out the women masses behind; terming them as to be the 'Jagat Jannani', i.e. mother to all mankind. In the present male dominated society it becomes even more imperative to look into women issues and provide them the rightful & dignified place. The atrocities towards women have so well imbedded into our society that we, at times, even fail to recognize their existence. So, Revered Saint Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Ji Insan initiated many activities that start from the womb and takes care of the females all through their various stages of life. Revered Guruji has commenced these much-needed welfare reforms targeting towards women empowerment, be it is prostitute rehabilitation or starting lineage through a girl's family, self-respect, liberation, learning and self-support, making women no less dignified than the males of the society. These welfare activities, which are more than 100 in number, are carried out across the globe by over 60 million volunteers in various capacities.

Crown Of The Lineage: Promoting Matrilineal Inheritance (parallel to the usual patrilineal one) by encouraging the boy (if he has another male sibling) to relocate to his wife's parental place with everyone's consent and look after the bride's parents as his own responsibility. Five such marriages have already been arranged by the pious inspiration of Revered Guru Ji. SHUBHDEVI (BANE REMOVED BY BOON) Revered Guru Ji adopts the girls entrapped in prostitution as his own daughters, gets them medically treated and rehabilitate them with the social mainstream by arranging their marriage, thus, creating a movement against prostitution. 17 such marriages have already been performed in Dera Sacha Sauda.

Each reforms starts with a thought, and such positive thoughts are flowing in abundance in the Dera and its followers. The followers not only take an oath in front of the Revered Guruji, but also fill in the pledge forms providing their assertions for the same. By the Grace of Revered Guruji, we have been highly successful in implementing these reforms at the grassroot level which otherwise seems quiet impossible. Revered Guruji always calls upon the masses to treat girl child at par with the boys, providing them with the same environment and opportunities. This will result in Girl child making a mark for herself and bringing honor to the parents and family. The girls are no less than boys in any field, be it knowledge, learning or hard work. On this International Women's Day, lets join hands in these welfare causes to make our society more loving & respectable towards women. Happy Women's Day to All !!
