Lack of employment and education makes it difficult for many women to stand on their feet. She has helped many Indian and foreign women who have come to Canada.

′′ There are many women who have been cheated and tortured by their husbands abroad. I educated them in my college and gave them a job.

But, Free never gave anything. Pay as much as you can for education, but the urge to do it builds self-esteem and confidence in them, ′′ That's my experience -- Chitralekha Potnis

′′ I try to educate and employ women to help them stand on their feet. Doing so, I make sure they are not overwhelmed. No matter how much needed, I never gave free education and a job without qualification. My constant effort is to make them feel the satisfaction of getting something on their own ′′
