The center provides free coaching to hundreds of underprivileged students to prepare for entrance exams of prominent college and universities.

Notably, Care for All Trust inaugurated their CFAT Vocational Training Center in Kairana on January 10 this year. The vocational center will start with a fashion designing course and subsequently, introduce various courses like opticians comprehensive course, sight testing course, contact lens fitting course, dispensing & fitting course, ophthalmic optics course, marble polishing course in Bangalore, sewing, embroidering course, leather bags manufacturing course, IT skill development,  web designing, MS Office and OS, graphic designing course, and Computer accounting course

It might be mentioned that Kairana is a small underdeveloped district with 50 per cent of its population living below the poverty line.

Care for All Trust aims to provide job-oriented and skill based training to women to overcome this poverty and increase their standard of living.

The NGO operates on a simple principle that if women are empowered, the next generation of children will automatically get a better future.

NewsGram talked to the Founder and Chairman of Care for All Trust, Imran Siddiqui. He said that he felt the need that the students should be provided the resources and chances so that they can achieve success but barriers like poverty do not let it happen and that is why he started the trust which provides the education free of the cost.

Imran said, “the students need resources and support to overcome the obstacles. Since, poverty was a major concern, free education would be of great assistance to the people of the village.”

An engineer by profession, Imran went to the USA in 2008 and met some more enthusiastic people who were eager to help the downtrodden people of rural India.

In 10 years the rigorous effort of Imran helped students crack tough entrance examinations of premiere institutions including AMU, JMI, and other institutes.

Imran is also considering to expand their organization and reach out to more such people.

Trust also indulges in talent hunt programs to encourage and promote young talents.

Imran further mentioned,”the public is appreciative of the effort of the Trust. People from around the world are donating for the cause.”

Though the body does not take government assistance but many administrative officials attended programs conducted by the trust.

Trust is also running a crash course in Saharanpur and hopes to expand its wings in other districts well. The social media is used in the promotion of the initiative.

The Care for All Trust aims to make some fruitful impact on the lives of many underprivileged children. The help provided to children is good no matter how from whom it is coming.

Tdap Vaccinations Do Not Pose a Risk of Autism

The link between vaccination and development of autism has been refuted by many rigorous scientific investigations. Unfortunately, the misconceptions still generate concerns.

Administering Tdap vaccination — tetanus, diphtheria, acellular pertussis — to pregnant women may not increase children’s risk of developing autism spectrum disorder, claims a study of more than 80,000 children born.

The study showed that the autism spectrum disorder rate in children was 1.5 per cent in the maternal Tdap vaccinated group and 1.8 per cent in the maternal unvaccinated group.

“Infants are at the highest risk of hospitalization and death among any population subgroup after contracting a pertussis infection, a highly contagious respiratory disease also known as the whooping cough,” said lead author Tracy A. Becerra-Culqui, a post-doctoral research student at Kaiser Permanente- a US-based health care company.

“Pregnant women can be reassured by this study that there is no indication of an increased risk of autism spectrum disorder in children after being exposed prenatally to the Tdap vaccine,” Becerra-Culqui added.

The study, published in the journal Pediatrics, looked at the autism diagnosis for nearly 82,000 children.

The Advisory Committee on Immunisation Practices, which provides guidance on the use of vaccines for the US, recommends pregnant women receive the Tdap vaccine to prevent pertussis infection, but some women still hesitate.
