Briefing from WSCF Staff & Officers meeting in Dhaka, Bangladesh
In the beginning of December the WSCF global staff and officers had in-person annual meeting in Dhaka, Bangladesh. The meeting followed the WSCF Inter-regional Leadership Training Programme that this year covered the theme of Migrants and Refugees Rights and hosted WSCF delegates from all around the world.
Last year was very challenging period for the Federation and in Dhaka we aimed to review and critically assess our work of the past year and the ongoing transition processes. We worked on the strategic planning for the next years and finalised the action plan for 2017. We also looked at current operational structures, finances and fundraising and analysed how to best utilise our internal capacities and resources to bring the Federation at the next level of development.
In Bangladesh we have experienced an amazing hospitality from our friends and colleagues from the local movement. A big thanks, Dhonno-baad to everyone who showed enormous support and care throughout our stay in Dhaka. The meeting was also a great opportunity to reconnect and meet with some of the senior friends from Bangladesh and Asia-Pacific Region and celebrate altogether the WSCF unity and spirit right before the Christmas.
