Retail super shop chain Shwapno on Monday offered employment opportunities to nine transgender people in an effort to integrate them into conventional workplaces.

The retail chain’s human resources department handed over appointment letters to the individuals in a ceremony at its head office in the capital, says a press release.

As per their job description, they will be posted at various distribution centers and retail outlets of the brand, the release adds.

During the ceremony, Sabbir Hasan Nasir, Shwapno’s executive director, Mohibur Rahman, head of distribution, Shah Md Rizvi Rony, head of HR, and other top officials were present.

“Transgender people deserve the right to be educated and self-sufficient by integrating themselves in the society. But they do not get that opportunity. Now Shwapno will stand beside them,” said Sabbir Hasan Nasir, executive director of Shwapno.

“Previously, I tried hard to find a job, but to no avail. Shwapno has finally given me that opportunity. I want to work here diligently,” said Moon, a transgender and one of the new recruits.
