Ministry of Education observes International Day of Persons with Disabilities

Posted: Tuesday, December 5, 2023. 11:26 am CST.

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: December 3 is recognized globally as International Day of Persons with Disabilities.

The day is set aside to promote awareness, understanding, and support for the rights and well-being of people with disabilities.

“Celebrating this day helps foster a more inclusive and equitable world for everyone,” the Ministry of Education, Culture, Science and Technology noted.

The Ministry invites everyone to create and wear unity bracelets to promote awareness of a disability close to your heart and show your support for persons with disabilities.

On Friday, December 8th, share your unity bracelet photos using the hashtag #UnityInAction.

The United Nations noted that given the multiple crises we are facing today, the world is not on track to reach numerous Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) targets by 2030.

Preliminary findings from the forthcoming UN Disability and Development Report 2023 indicate that the world is even more off-track in meeting several SDGs for persons with disabilities.

“A fundamental shift in commitment, solidarity, financing and action is critical. Encouragingly, with the adoption of the Political Declaration of the recent SDG Summit, world leaders have recommitted themselves to achieving sustainable development and shared prosperity for all, by focusing on policies and actions that target the poorest and most vulnerable, including persons with disabilities,” the U.N. noted.
