IDPD or International Day Of Persons With Disabilities, has been establishes since 1992 by the United Nations, to increase awareness for people with disabilities, and to help society treat them with dignity, respect and equality. It also aims to help people with disabilities be integrated into every aspect of society and careers, and to help them have equal opportunities.
It’s a day to celebrate difference, and to understand that differently abled doesn’t mean incapable. With places containing ease of access, schools containing special programs, and society being more aware, disabled people – now more than ever – have the ability to thrive and work for their future same as any able bodied person. We still have a long way to go to achieve complete equality, but we’ve come very far already.
