MANGALDAI: Rehabilitation and empowerment of former female cadres willing to join the mainstream and family members are effective means to bring them back to the mainstream after assisting in their livelihood and social progression.

Taking the concept forward, unit of Indian Army deployed in Darrang district donated sewing machines to Dast-R, an SHG committed to looking after the welfare of former insurgents in Lower Assam.
