Rebuilding life after Rana Plaza

A small shop built on big dreams

Badly injured while helping to rescue fellow workers from the rubble of Rana Plaza, Shahjahan Selim is now permanently disabled. Through ILO medical and business skills assistance Selim has overcome adversity to open a small shop which after just one year of operation has grown to twice its original size. ILO support to Selim was provided through a programme funded by Canada, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom.
