As the modernization is taking place in the Present Era there is a need for a Boy or a Girl to get employed and have a good Financial Stability. But unfortunately all of us don't have their job according to their Education or Degree.
This is due to the Inability to Crack the Interview or Lack of Awareness regarding "HOW TO FACE AN INTERVIEW” and for a simple reason their Application are Rejected in the First round itself. Under the Guidance of Huzoor e Aa'li TUS Tadbeer Foundation has organized an Interview Training Session for the College Students and Freshers.

Muslim women from the city for the first time took techniques of self-defence on Sunday, 31/7/2016. These women learnt in defending themselves physically from notorious elements and eve-teasers.
The Alavi Bohra community has taken this initiative to ensure safety for Muslim girls and women. They were taught how to protect themselves in virtual world while surfing on social networking websites.
"We decided to organize this training programme for women to spread awareness about lurking danger and also on how to defend oneself. It was a three-hour workshop where the women were taught several moves to tackle miscreants. This is one of the first steps towards women empowerment among the Alavi Bohra community," said Dr Bhaisaheb Zulkarnain, president of Tadbeer Foundation that has organized the workshop.
"Vadodara is a very safe city for women so many don't think it is necessary for them to learn self-defence techniques. But in the era of globalization, one has to move around a lot and people from outside too settle in our city. So it is important to know how to protect oneself. We are trying to reach out to as many Muslim women as possible." "Most of the women are now on social networking sites and use internet daily. It is important for them to know how to protect themselves in the cyber world. So we will organize another workshop focusing on cyber security for women." Zulkarnain told TOI.
The M D Self Defence Academy taught basic moves to the women at Taiyebi Hall on Ajwa Road on Sunday.

While launching the Helpline, Aqaa Maulaa said in his key address that, “Today the principle of Pythagorean Triangle is applicable in Family Relationship, its Bonding and the Role of each family members with others. The 3 points of A, B & C where the angles are formed are Grand Parents, Parents and Children of the family. They are equally inter-related with each other to form a complete Triangle. All sides are equal and each one has a direct connection with the remaining two. Each one has its role to play. No one can take the place of other. These Dynamics can work magic for the Healthy Family. Ours is the Joint Family culture. Others can follow us in taking care and giving due Respect to our Elders as well as in proper Upbringing of our Children. Leaving the Parents is Leaving your Roots and if you indeed leave them then you will be left with Discomfort and Disharmony. Branches can never live without its Stem and Stem can never come up without its Roots.”
The Alavi Bohra community on 23-5-2016, Sunday launched a state-wide helpline for married couples and children. The community has taken the initiative to help the troubled couples and anxious teenagers who have communication gap with their parents.

The helpline to be run by professionals will also try to counsel couples facing marital problems," said Dr Bhaisaheb Zulkarnain, President of Tadbeer Foundation that has launched the helpline.

Awareness amongst Rural People
TADBEER FOUNDATION has always accomplished its motive by spreading awareness to various class and age of people. The journey continues and this time TADBEER FOUNDATION went to Madheli Village (Near Parul Institute) to spread the light of awareness amongst rural people.
It started when we met the sarpanch (Head) of the village and gave him our introduction and works carried out by TADBEER FOUNDATION, without waiting for a moment he took us to the Primary School and we got the chance to impart our knowledge. With the due cooperation of the teachers, we began interacting with the kids of the school. The topics covered were
1. Child Abuse
2. Importance of Education
3. Health is Wealth (Awareness about Cleanliness)
Being at the school we started with the topic of Education. The importance of getting education were taught to the children. Examples were given of some the Nation's great personalities to motivate them. It was great to see such a positive response from the kids. Also, children whole heartedly promised us to study well and get the highest education.
After getting more interactive with children we started with the topic of CHILD ABUSE
Children were told about the GOOD TOUCH AND BAD TOUCH. Knowledge was given to the children's about the child abuse, How to safeguard own selves. Children were given the confidence to talk to their parents and teachers if any such things happen with them.
Girls were especially given a thorough knowledge about the TOUCHES. They were well acquainted with the knowledge about how to react if someone touches them wrongly. The EMERGENCY helpline number for girls were on their lips then.
Next we came to Health is Wealth.
Increasing diseases urged us to make kids aware about the cleanliness to be maintained at Home, School and their surroundings. Use of proper drainage, Washing the hands before and after having the food, Clean toilets and loo, Bathing everyday, Maintaining hygiene and asking everyone around them to maintain cleanliness were the sub topics covered.
A Seminar on the "Art of Parenting" 3-3-1437 - December 13, 2015
Tadbeer Foundation marks a niche in its another endeavour by their never ending efforts. Tadbeer Foundation had organised a seminar on “Growing up with your Child: The Art of Parenting” on 13th December 2015 at Zenith High School, Vadodara. In this event various eminent Speakers, Psychiatrists and Psychologists of Vadodara were invited for their knowledgeable guidance and practical views on upbringing of children in this 21st century.
The program started at 10am in the morning. The welcome speech was given by the Vice President Mrs. Naashetah Z Bhaisaheb of the Tadbeer Foundation followed by the Tilaawat of Qur’an-e-Hakeem. The first speaker of the session was Dr. Jayesh Shah – A Counselor and the Chairman of the Parliament of World Religions. He talked about the Importance of Counselling in today’s era, as this is the Era of Technology, Knowledge and Stress. Thus parents should have to balance between these three things. The second speaker for the seminar was Dr. Bimla Parimu – Clinical Psychologist and Family Therapist at the Department of Psychology - The M S University of Baroda, she guided the parents about giving quality time to children and not to be violent with them and making them understand what is wrong and right rather than punishing them for wrong doings.
After her valuable guidance on Parenting skills; the 45th Spiritual Head, Da’i ul-Mutlaq, His Holiness Saiyedna Haatim Zakiyuddin Saheb (TUS) (Guest of Honour) presided over the function and shared his views on “Why there is need of Parenting in this Era?” Years back parents were the primary counsellors at home for their children and teachers were guiding light to them outside their home at the second stage. In this century both parents and teachers are busy in their profession and less attention is being paid to children so there is need of counsellors and experts to listen them and solve their basic issues. He also mentioned that family size in this modern era is small and nuclear so there is less respect to the elders by the children in the family.
In this seminar Dr. Yogesh Patel who is an eminent Psychiatrist – S. C. Patel De-addiction Centre said that, To control Teenage Aggression parents should enroll their children in sports activities. He also told the parents and teacher staff that they have equal contribution in children’s failure as well as success. Dr.Kataria and Dr. Ismail Pala who are well known Psychiatrist of Vadodara emphasized their talk on stress management in children as well as parents and importance of discipline in one’ s life in today’s fast forward time.
In the seminar more than 260 parents participated and took the benefit of the knowledgeable views and guidance from the eminent speakers. The speakers also answered the relevant questions from the audience in the question – answer session which took place at the end of the seminar. The vote of thanks was given by Mukaasir ud- Da’wat Mohammad Nuruddin Saheb (dm) followed by the mementos to the dignitaries by the members of Tadbeer Foundation.
