An estimated one billion people living with disabilities worldwide face many obstacles in their everyday life. Since 1992, International Day of People with Disabilities (IDPwD) has been observed ever year on December 3rd. IDPwD is a United Nations endorsed day that is celebrated globally. The commemoration helps raise awareness about disabilities and draw attention to the benefits of an accessible society for all types of people.
- Roughly 1 in 5 people in the US have a disability
- Nearly 19.9 people need a wheelchair, cane, crutch, or walker.
- 90% of children with disabilities who live in developing countries do not receive proper education.
- Only 5-15% of disabled people who need assistive devices and technology have access to them.
Theme: Inclusion Matters: Access and Empowerment for People of All Disabilities
The organization’s objective is to build widespread knowledgeable societies that support and promote the issues that come along with disabilities. Many individuals with disabilities lack the same access as others. Whether it’s transportation, social participation, or education, we must create more cities that are accessible for all in order to improve the lives of those with disabilities.
