Minister’s Welcome Message

We are glad that you are taking the time to visit our website, and hope you will learn more about the Ministry of Employment, Social Affairs, and Family’s work here. Over the past years, the Ministry has made great strides in fulfilling its mandate to serve for specific target groups of the society, especially women, children, people with disabilities and other socially disadvantaged groups including refugees, asylum seekers, IDPs, returnees and minorities to ensure their rights of accessing basic services, fair employment opportunities, and protection support are ensured.

MESAF Managed to have strong working relationships with different stakeholders for designing and implementing of macro/microprograms and projects in the areas of protection of child rights, creating employment opportunities and empowering women to participate key national decision-making bodies.

MESAF is also busy in building a productive labor force with organized representative trade unions governed by fair labor laws and policies. MESAF stands for valued family cohesion and inclusive society where women, youth, children, minorities, people with disabilities and other vulnerable groups have a stake in decision making and participating in all levels of development processes.

I urge all the stakeholders to use the website as it contains information about our Ministry and has simplified information flow across the sector.
