This Saturday is 2016’s International Day of People with Disability (IDPwD). IDPWD is an opportunity to promote understanding and acceptance of people living with a disability, and to also celebrate each individual’s achievements and contributions.
Each year has a theme and the theme and this year is: Achieving 17 Goals for the Future We Want focusing on a more inclusive and equitable world for persons with disabilities.
