Mission: REACT is working in the backwaters and is trying
to set up units in the other parts of our country and trying
to send people back to their homes .Not the ones who have
permanently settled here, but the ones , who come for six
-seven months a year just for the sake of earning some extra
dough during the lull period in their farms and villages.
Family unity and strength needs to be strengthened .In the
process, the lure of the towns need to be dampened and village
upliftments need to be geared up. And by this process only
can we think of our metros to be truly Metros.

dumb girls of Vasai Taluka and employing them as per their
