World Day for Persons with Disabilities
• There are more than 1 billion people in the world who have certain kind of physical disability.
• Majority of disabled people fall into the criteria of social discrimination.
• In some countries disable people are still being deprived of their basic rights including education and political participation.
Every year on 3rd of December World Day for Persons with Disabilities is celebrated to address the rights of people with disabilities. The day is devoted towards disabled people and primarily looks after their humanitarian needs.
We have indeed stepped into a new and modern world, we have innovative technologies and our lifestyle has seen a drastic change. It’s obvious that we live in proud country where human rights have an important role, but there are places in the world where discrimination is still practiced. Living a life grasped by a disability can be challenging, but in order to boost their self-esteem we have to constantly promote their human rights and notify them that they are no different than us.
