Unfortunately, they are not respected by our society. Due to certain dualities and unfavorable situation they have to work for their children’s future yet face the contempt of the society. Vinay Vast, the director of SAI, is truly taking the responsibility of a brother and is striving for the upliftment and rehabilitation of these sisters. I will always work with Vinay Vast for the welfare of these sisters,” concluded emotional actor Vijay Kadam.
“Rakshabandhan is a festival of unbreakable bond between brother and sister. Usually, one has only few sisters. But I am lucky to have hundreds of sisters. We have been implementing various activities through SAI for the past two decades for the upliftment of these sisters. We are setting up a big rehabilitation center at Bhiwandi for these sisters. For the construction of this center, every brother should help his sister.” SAI director Vinay Vast made an emotional appeal.
