Bangladesh: The Handyman Without Hands

This video clip is by an ILO apprenticeship project in Bangladesh. 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.
