About International Day of People with Disabilities

International Day of People with Disability (on 3rd December) is about:

Celebration – to recognize & value the diversity of our global community, & to cherish the role that we all play, whatever our level of ability.

Learning – to understand & learn from the experiences of people living with a disability;

It is a day for optimism – to look towards the future & the creation of a world where a person is not characterised by their disabilities, but by their abilities;

Action – where all people, organisations, agencies & charities not only show their support for International Day of People with Disabilities, but take on a commitment to create a world characterised by equal human rights.
