This is Sadia Afrin Kona, I have completed my Bachelor of Laws and Masters of Laws form the Department of Law from East West University. I have experience working at Bangladesh Legal Aid and Services Trust (BLAST) as a National Fellow under a project called Legal Empowerment of Gender Diverse Community (LEGD), where my main responsibilities were to research about the community members, analyzing their challenges, co-organizing advocacy meetings and training seminars, assisting program team and preparing documents for monitoring and evaluation. I also helped preparing the quarterly reports and power point presentation for program team, maintained case files of the project and assisted my supervisor during meetings with donors and beneficiaries as well. For the research, I also did field visit in different division and through interviews and proper communications I gathered data about gender diverse community members.
Now I am working as a Labor Rights Fellow at BLAST under a Project called Empowering workers for Justice (EWJ). My responsibilities are to assisting BLAST in organizing the online symposium, preparing concept notes, communicating with national and international experts, preparing content, participating in the mentorship program established by BLAST. I also analyzing workers' rights situation in the construction and tannery and prepare recommendations on the progress of current issues and future trends. In addition, I am working on the legal reform proposal, making input into the advocacy strategy, assisting in ongoing workers' rights advocacy, interviewing workers, and relevant stakeholders for situation analysis, collecting evidence and conducting fieldwork for the research to be conducted.
I believe, this opportunity would enhance my analytical ability and intellectual integrity to a great extent and would make me more enthusiastic to pursue my career in legal empowerment development sector.
