Message from Chairperson
This is my pleasure to acknowledge sincere contribution of OSGE team members in implementing projects and programs planned for 2015. The year started with serious political unrest and violence, later it took turn as serious threat to worker’s life and livelihood, and particularly the transport workers had to face difficult time. Though the situation improved, but yet occupation safety in workplace is a concern to us and we strongly believe that, collective actions can improve the situation.
Our working relationship with development partners, GoB agencies, trade unions, civil society, research bodies and other stakeholders enhanced during the reporting period and I would like to thank all concerned for their continuous support and cordial assistance to us.
Our connectivity with some other organizations at regional and international level created platform for sharing mutual learning and experience and strongly believe that, such kind of sharing will be continued in coming days also.
2015 is also important for OSHE, as this year, the office was shifted to a permanent place with modern facilities and now working environment is better than the past. For more detail about OSHE visit OSHE Foundation Annual Report.
In spite of our limitations, OSHE team was sincere in transforming knowledge and skills to the beneficiary groups and tried best to bring positive changes in work areas. I appreciate dynamic leadership of Executive Director and also acknowledge contribution of EC members in guiding the organization with due importance.
I wish success of the team in 2016 and meaningful delivery for betterment of the working class.
Finally, I will appreciate comments and suggestions from our well-wishers to improve our service for worker’s interest and sustainable development.
