Tabassum Parveen

from the heart “THE ATDC SMART COURSE NOT ONLY MADE MY LIFE EASY BUT ALSO GAVE IT A PURPOSE. I AM THANKFUL TO THE FACULTY THAT HELPED ME SHAPE MY LIFE”

Purpose to Life Shaken by her mother’s demise, Tabassum Parveen can’t hide her emotions when she speaks of what ATDC has done for her Death ends a life, not hope. Losing one of your parents early in life is something that can literally kill all hope — especially if you are living in a modest family where making ends meet is what takes up all thoughts and energies. The death of her mother came as a huge jolt for Tabassum Parveen, then just 19. Living at Bankra in Howrah district in West Bengal, she had promised her mother she would raise nine younger siblings if anything ever happened to her. A herculean promise, one must say. But some people are born to be tough and fight against all odds in any situation. “When mom died, it ripped our lives apart. She was the heart of our family. She worked hard to provide us food and education,” says an emotional Tabassum. Tabassum had never thought that she would have to play the role of a mother at such a tender age. Without any means of gainful employment in the absence of either knowledge or skills, Tabassum faced a lot of difficulty in providing even basic meals to her brothers and sisters. But, the almighty helps those who help themselves. Undeterred, she kept on looking for options. Then, one of her friends told her about ATDC. Tabassum got enrolled in SMART (Basic) course sponsored by Ambuja Cement Foundation. The faculty at ATDC provided her basic training to stitch clothes and helped her ward off initial fears. Now, things are different for her. Tabassum started her own tailoring business. Slowly, she picked up the pieces and her business started rolling. Today, she has five employees and is trying her best to give back to the society by empowering other women like her. She has dedicated her life to provide a better life to her siblings. “The ATDC-SMART course not only made my life easy but also gave it a purpose. I am thankful to the faculty that helped me shape my life,” she says
