- Has started a project named "Nanhi Chhaan", a movement to save girl child and trees. An initiative to fight against female feticide and to empower women in rural areas.
- This initiative has now an active presence in schools, colleges, gurudwaras, temples, churches, panchayats and various municipal centres. Nanhi Chhaan assists in setting up self-help groups (SHGs) for women across the state that in turn spread awareness not only about female feticide but also about other issues such as dealing with cancer, agriculture, farmer's issues, environmental issues and the ever depleting forest cover. The SHGs also help the women collectively set up small businesses and manage their savings in a more efficient manner.
- Nanhi Chhaan initiative has opened 75 Silaai centres (stitching centres) at villages, where training is provided to more than 1900 girls in stitching clothes, weaving durries (traditional Punjabi mats) and phulkari (a traditional embroidery technique of Punjab used to decorate shawls and scarves).
