Since 1992, the United Nations International Day of Persons with Disabilities (IDPD) has been annually observed on 3 December around the world. The theme for this year’s IDPD is “Empowering persons with disabilities and ensuring inclusiveness and equality”. This theme focuses on the empowering persons with disabilities for the inclusive, equitable and sustainable development envisaged in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
The 2030 Agenda, pledging to “leave no one behind,” is an ambitious plan of action of the international community towards a peaceful and prosperous world, where dignity of an individual person and equality among all is applied as the fundamental principle, cutting across the three pillars of the work of the United Nations: Development, Human Rights and Peace and Security. It is critical to ensure, in this regard, the full and equal participation of persons with disabilities in all spheres of society and create enabling environments by, for and with persons with disabilities….. What does Inclusive means to you as an Employer, Parent, School Owner? It means Including persons with This-Ability in all spheres of life. We are talking about equality but equity.
Equity requires us to give them what they need for their individual use, educating children with This-Ability with justness, fairness, impartiality and even handedness.
Think about the children in the world and make the world a better place for them. Don’t forget to contact us on www.indieducationalconsult.com for trainings on Inclusive Education. Happy Celebrations
