Today is International Day of People with Disability, an United Nations (UN) sanctioned day which is celebrated each year on December 3. The day aims to promote action and raise awareness of the benefits of including people with disability in all aspects of society.
This year the theme is Inclusion Matters: Access and empowerment for people of all abilities. People with disability face many barriers to enjoying equal access and inclusion in society. Of the estimated one billion people with disability globally, more than 80 per cent live in poverty. Empowering people with disability is crucial to breaking the cycle of poverty and disability; and is therefore essential to all development efforts.
RESULTS supports disability inclusive development in all our work.
This brilliant video produced by CBM Australia celebrates that the new Global Goals include people with disability.
