  From the heart “BEING DEAF DOES NOT HOLD YOU BACK. IT IS SIMPLY ABOUT FINDING A WAY TO ACHIEVE WHATEVER IT IS YOU WANT IN LIFE. ATDC HELPED ME ACHIEVE MY GOALS” Defeating Disability By training differently-abled Bhanu, ATDC has embarked on its journey to skill people with disabilities pan-India Meeting this 28-year-old differently-abled woman from Faridabad can leave you speechless. She fearlessly breaks barriers in a world that does little for people with disabilities. Not that she expects the world to do anything for her. “One has to have a positive attitude and make the best of the situation one finds oneself in; if one is physically disabled, one cannot afford to be psychologically disabled as well,” says Bhanu, who gives credit to her mother-in-law Aruna for making her a stronger, more determined and independent woman – and also for introducing her to ATDC. For the rest, the credit goes to ATDC. Aruna did the initial research and encouraged her to sign up for the SMART Sewing Operator (Basic) course at ATDC Faridabad. After successfully completing the course, Bhanu got a job with Pee Empro Exports in Faridabad where her work is being highly appreciated by the management. “I never thought I would get this far in life. But look at me now. ATDC and my family have helped me make my life a worthy one,” says an ecstatic Bhanu. “After the ATDC-SMART course, Bhanu is not only much more confident, but also achieved great professionalism,” adds Aruna. Now, she plays the roles of a mother, a wife and a daughter-in-law with perfection. Her 5-year-old daughter studies in a reputed school in Faridabad and she not only supports her family financially but is also actively taking part in daily chores. “Being deaf does not hold you back. It is simply about finding a way to achieve whatever it is you want in life. ATDC helped me achieve my goal,” notes Bhanu. With her, ATDC added another feather to its cap — to skill people with disabilities. For, the skill provider believes in this old adage: “When you focus on someone’s disability you will overlook their abilities, beauty and uniqueness. Once you learn to accept and love them for who they are, you subconsciously learn to love yourself unconditionally.”   Read More...

  From the heart “IT WAS THE ENDLESS HARD WORK AND DETERMINATION OF THE FACULTY WHO HELPED ME ACHIEVE MY AIM” Symbol of Courage Right guidance from ATDC has helped Manti Das enter the apparel sector with a bang Manti Das lives by her own motto. Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts. And courage is what some are born with, while others gather from their surroundings. Manti, a girl from a middle-class family in West Bengal, had little to do after earning a bachelor’s degree from a reputed university. The jobs were there, but not to her satisfaction. Her aim was to acquire skill-sets that would take her ahead in life; a simple, clerical job was not her cup of tea. After much deliberation, she enrolled for an Advance Diploma in the Apparel Manufacturing Technology (AMT) programme at ATDC Kolkata. The very first few days at ATDC cleared any misgivings she may have had; she was sure she had made a right choice. The market-oriented curricula, state-of-the-art infrastructure, trained faculty and a friendly atmosphere inculcated a sense of security in her. And the programme opened new vistas for Manti. She was sent to Arvind Ltd — one of the largest integrated textile and branded apparel players — by ATDC for an internship programme. For 25-year-old Manti, this was the opportunity she had been waiting for. Her excellent performance resulted in a job offer from Arvind Ltd. “I am indebted to ATDC to a great extent. The technical and practical knowledge about the apparel and textile sector boosted my confidence,” she reveals. “It’s true that hard work pays, but the right guidance is equally important.” Manti also gives credit for her success to her parents who always motivated her. Currently, Manti is working as a lab technician in the quality department of Arvind Ltd on a handsome package. She can't forget the day when she decided to join ATDC. “I encourage friends and other girls from my area to look at ATDC courses as they plan their career.” Manti has come a long way. The road ahead is full of hope. Read More...

from the heart “I OWE MY SUCCESS TO ATDC TO A GREAT EXTENT. THE TECHNICAL AND PRACTICAL KNOWLEDGE ABOUT THE APPAREL AND TEXTILE SECTOR BOOSTED MY CONFIDENCE” Engineer of a Different Kind His journey to become an Industrial Engineer began when he met a childhood friend in Guindy, who told him about ATDC R. Rajesh wanted to do something big in life. He could not continue his studies to become a civil engineer due to financial constraints but he did become a different kind of engineer — an Industrial Engineer (IE). According to the 25-year-old son of a farmer, his father used to ask them if we were doing well in studies. Just an answer in the affirmative would bring a smile to his face,” recalls Rajesh. His journey to become an Industrial Engineer began when he met a childhood friend in Guindy, who told him about ATDC. Rajesh believed the opportunity could lead him to his dream. “I enrolled myself in the AMT course as it was sponsored by the government,” says Rajesh. Once he completed the course, Rajesh started working as an Industrial Engineer in AI Enterprises in Chennai at a handsome salary of Rs 20,000. “It was the hard work and determination of the faculty members of ATDC Guindy that helped me achieve my aim,” he says. Rajesh is happy that his father’s hard work has paid off and his own dream has become reality. Read More...

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 Read More...

From Bihar to Bahrain A skill gives a person wings to fly. How far one flies depends on his calibre and luck. Here are two boys who flew across the seas Subham Kumar Upadhyay, 23, was an ordinary boy in a distant village in Bihar. He was willing to work hard, but the question was: in what should he invest his labour? He appeared for a polytechnic exam and cleared it, but could not take admission as the fee was too high. One day, he came to know about ATDC through a friend. He enquired further about the fee structure and career prospects after the course. Subham borrowed money from one of his father’s friends and enrolled for the two-year Advance Diploma in Apparel Manufacturing Technology at ATDC Patna. After the course, he joined Akriti Creation, Delhi, as a Quality Controller. In August 2013, ATDC organised a Placement Week at his headquarters in Gurgaon, and Subham decided to join ATDC. It was a decision that would change his life. Among the companies shopping for talent at the Placement Week was MRS Fashions, a Bahrain based company. They liked what they saw in Shubham: a hard worker who thanks ATDC’s training that helped him know about the apparel business. MRS Fashions hired him as a Quality Controller. He joined the company on December 31. “This is unbelievable,” Subham says. “It seems like a dream that I am sitting in Bahrain today and earning a handsome amount. This opportunity came my way all thanks to ATDC.” He now draws an equivalent of Rs 26,000 a month. Today, he has become an inspiration for youth in his hometown. Take, for instance, Ravi Kant Shekhar, 21. His father worked in a Post Office and did not earn much. Then, he passed away and Ravi’s world came crashing down. Now, he was the breadwinner. But with neither a higher education nor any skills, what could he do? He somehow enrolled for a course at ATDC Patna. He, too, joined Akriti Creation, Delhi as Quality Controller. And like Subham, he was also picked by MRS Fashions. Skill has no boundaries, and they just prove that. Read More...

from the heart “ATDC GAVE ME THE PLATFORM FROM WHERE MY CAREER TOOK OFF. I CAN SAY THAT I OWE ALL MY SUCCESS TO ATDC” IN A DIFFERENT MOULD They are not ‘engineers’ as we know the term, but they are key to production on the floor of an apparel manufacturing unit, maintaining quality, efficiency and productivity Cricket to Cloth Dayal Singh Negi has a success story to narrate that most would love to experience but only a few would achieve Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom. He was a budding cricketer, playing the game at the club level with the likes of Gautam Gambhir, Robin Bisht and Robin Singh. But sports is not a career most parents encourage their children to take up. “You have to do something concrete which gives you deep technical knowledge,” his elder brother told him soon after Dayal Singh Negi, 28, completed his graduation from Delhi University. The choice of sector also came from his brother. “He told me to go for the apparel sector as it was a booming area,” recalls Dayal. “I am happy I heeded his advice and joined the Apparel Manufacturing Technology (AMT) programme at ATDC,” he says. Rightly so, because not too many 28-year-olds would have such a wonderful success story to tell. Hold your breath. His annual package today is nearly Rs 18 lakh! But there is another story behind this success: the story of perseverance, dedication and hard work. Dayal came from an educated, middle-class family. His father worked as an engineer in the erstwhile Delhi Electricity Supply Undertaking. “ATDC gave me the much-needed platform from where my career took off. I can say that I owe all my success to ATDC,” says Dayal, who is working as an Industrial Engineer (IE) Group Manager at Orient Clothing in Gurgaon. The AMT course taught him the technical know-how of pattern making, garment construction, quality control, fabric study, specialised machinery and work aids, apparel production techniques, time and motion study and production planning and or IE executive,” says Dayal. “I would say it was a wonderful experience at ATDC. The faculty, the training modules, the infrastructure — everything was excellent,” adds Dayal. An inspiring tale, indeed control. A pretty exhaustive, very modern, standardised curricula for those who want to correctly understand the science behind apparel production, he feels. His career started after he joined Orient Craft, Noida. “The initial years of my career were very formative for me. I started in the company as a trainee and within a period of three years, I was promoted as the senior IE executive, “says Dayal. “I would say it was a wonderful experience at ATDC. The faculty, the training modules, the infrastructure- everything was excellent.” Adds Dayal. An inspiring tale, indeed. Read More...
