Tim Penggerak Pemberdayaan Kesejahteraan Keluarga (TP PKK) Kota Probolinggo menyelenggarakan pondok Ramadan 1438 H. Kegiatan yang dilangsungkan di rumah dinas Wali Kota Probolinggo itu, diikuti sekitar 350 peserta dari pengurus TP PKK kota, kecamatan dan kelurahan se Kota Probolinggo, Dharma Wanita Persatuan (DWP) unsur pelaksanan Organisasi Perangkat Daerah (OPD), serta perwakilan organisasi wanita dan keagamaan. Pondok Ramadan merupakan agenda tahunan, di mana tahun ini dilaksanakan selama dua hari (14-15/6). 

Sri Justijahrini, Ketua Panitia pondok Ramadan mengatakan tujuan kegiatan tersebut di antaranya untuk meningkatkan keimanan dan ketakwaan peserta. Selain itu, pondok Ramadan ini dimaksudkan untuk membangun motivasi peserta dalam menjalankan ibadah di bulan puasa, serta bagaimana menyikapi permasalahan di rumah tangga. Pondok Ramadan juga dijadikan ajang silaturahim para peserta.

Wali Kota Rukmini, dalam sambutannya mengingatkan peserta untuk tidak terlalu konsumtif menghadapi Idul Fitri. “Setiap menjelang lebaran, ibu-ibu sibuk menyiapkan keperluan. Belilah barang sesuai kebutuhan, jangan terlalu konsumtif. Kegiatan halal bi halal saat lebaran memang hanya di negara kita yang lazim dilakukan. Kalau di Arab (Arab Saudi) sana tidak ada kegiatan seperti lebaran di sini. Jadi tidak salah kita menyiapkan suguhan buat tamu-tamu kita. Tapi sekali lagi belilah kebutuhan bukan keinginan agar kita bisa berhemat,” ingat Rukmini. 

Terkait dengan pelaksanaan pondok Ramadan, Wali Kota menginginkan adanya kunjungan ke kelompok-kelompok pengajian wanita. Selain itu, Wali Kota wanita pertama itu menginginkan kegiatan semacam ini diisi dengan tutorial bagaimana berhijab yang baik sesuai syariat, serta ada semacam pelatihan kepribadian.
