Every year on December 3rd, the International Day of People with Disabilities, also known as Disability Day, is celebrated. Since 1992, the United Nations has been promoting the day, with the goal of promoting public awareness of the rights of individuals with disabilities. This day is widely commemorated and widely celebrated around the world.
The main focus of the International Disability Day is to promote greater awareness of persons with disabilities and their issues. The purpose of the day is to raise awareness of the rights and dignity of persons who are physically challenged. Every facet of their social, economic, political, and cultural existence needs to be emphasized. Disability Day encompasses all types of impairments, not only those that are mental or physical, such as Autism, Down syndrome, and Multiple Sclerosis.
On this day, a great number of charitable organizations and social activists work to increase public awareness of disabilities. To connect the lives of disabled individuals with the larger community, they hold camps, wellness programs, and marathons. They also have forums and conversations about disabilities. All of these activities aid in motivating the neighborhood to join and educate itself on issues affecting the disabled.
The day’s overall goal is to promote awareness of and acceptance of the handicapped community among people who are not impaired. It serves as a call to action for the neighborhood to create an inclusive society in terms of employment, education, and other social activities. Numerous groups work for the rights of people with disabilities and to eradicate all forms of prejudice.
The theme for the year 2022 is ‘Transformative solutions for inclusive development: the role of innovation in fuelling an accessible and equitable world‘.
Let us stand together to build a world of equality and opportunities for every human being!
