Not only has Parichay done its bit to promote hockey, it has also raised funds for the education for underprivileged children and given a feeling of empowerment to these slum women, who have overcome many challenges in life to stand on their own feet with the help of Parichay Foundation. I want to congratulate Smt Rosalin Patsani Mishra for this. “
