Author- The Warrior Widows Link-

Ambreen has been a well-known journalist and a columnist. She has won accolades and several awards for her groundwork related to forgotten heroes of Indian armed forces & the victims of Bhopal Gas Tragedy, in leading newspapers like Times Of India, Hindustan Times and Dainik Bhaskar. She has also worked at senior levels at NASSCOM Foundation & UNICEF. She has been at the helm of affairs of the world’s first blog magazine, Blogger’s Park, first as its founding Editor. She regularly writes for national & international publications, writing about the issues which need immediate attention.

Being an Army wife, Ambreen has been actively involved in the welfare of War Widows & Orphans. Putting her experience and expertise to good use she has founded The Changemakers, where she and her team identifies, mentors and guides war widows, war orphans, and people with needs.

Her debut book ‘The Warrior Widows’ which was released last month, is being widely acclaimed and appreciated. Honourable Defence Minister Shri Rajnath Singh ji was so moved with the stories of these valiant women featured in the book that he decided to pen a message of encouragement, which is also a part of the book.

The Changemakers works in collaboration with the various welfare organisations of the Indian Defence Forces and contributes toward building a more inclusive and better world for all. Rehabilitation of war widows, “Veer Naris” as we call them, has been her foremost concern since day one, to help them lead a life of dignity and respect. She has been associated with war widows of 1962- 1965-1971-Kargil wars and helps them in their areas of concern. From Ayodhya to, Srinagar, to Ranchi, to Satara in Maharashtra, to Cochin, to Borduria village in Arunachal Pradesh, to Chhatra in Jharkhand Ambreen is personally associated with widows of our soldiers there and helps them rebuild their lives.

Recently, Ambreen has won two decades long battle against govt apathy, for a long pending demand of people of Village Dhanuri in Rajasthan, with 250 serving, 300 retired, 15 killed in action soldiers and 3 Prisoners of War, for a War memorial in the honour of the soldiers killed in action, from the village. Even after 100s of letters of appeal by the villagers & promises by all govts, nothing worked. Ambreen took up the cause, met the leaders of all political parties, people in power, authorities concerned and now the state govt of Rajasthan & local administration has taken cognisance of the issue and granted all clearances & permissions required to build a memorial there.

She is on a mission to help the families of our soldiers killed in action, by holding their hearts and hands and helping them lead life of utmost dignity and respect. We are a group of highly motivated individuals, well established and accomplished in our fields. Now we feel is to do our bit and best for the society. We believe that our one action has the potential to change the live of so many people belonging to lesser privileged backgrounds.

Remember the pledge we took in our schools-

“India is my country and all Indians are my brothers and sisters.”

So how can we leave our brothers and sisters in a sorry state. Through our various educational programmes, trainings, mentoring & placements we help our beneficiaries improve their existing skills so that they can confidently take a step forward to make their lives better & healthier.
