Ask anyone in Tongi, Bangladesh about Mosharrof Hossain and they’ll tell you he’s the man to fix your fridge. What they probably won’t tell you is that he will do it without hands – both were amputated following an electrical fire. In 2012, Mosharrof was selected to be one of the master craftspeople passing on skills to young people as part of a new, structured apprenticeship scheme developed by the ILO with BRAC (an international NGO), UNICEF and the Government of Bangladesh.
The story of Mosharrof is featured at the ILO 16th Asia and the Pacific Regional Meeting (APRM) , in Bali, Indonesia, from 6-9 December 2016.
The APRM, which is held every four years, is expected to bring together around 450 delegates from more than 40 countries in Asia, the Pacific and the Arab States. The meeting will discuss regional world-of-work priorities and the ILO’s vision for realising decent work from 2016 to 2021.
