Video: Tailor’s troubles, a disabled worker’s story

Workers with disabilities face an uphill battle to be treated equally in the workplace, and COVID-19 economic impacts are affecting many. This week we profile a garment sector worker who has lost her job, but hasn’t stopped dreaming of a better life.

This video was made by Frontier Myanmar with the support of Fondation Hirondelle, with funding from the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation and the Embassy of the Netherlands.
