World Disability Day celebrations- Walk to Freedom


International Day of Persons with Disabilities falls on the 3rd of December each year, with the aim of promoting empowerment, and helping to create real opportunities for people with disabilities. This enhances their own capacities and supports them in setting their own priorities. Empowerment involves investing in people – in jobs, health, nutrition, education, and social protection. When people are empowered they are better prepared to take advantage of opportunities, they become agents of change and can more readily embrace their civic responsibilities. Theme for International Day of Persons with Disabilities: Empowering persons with disabilities and ensuring inclusiveness and equality”.

NCPEDP has been traditionally celebrating the International Day of Persons with Disabilities for two decades at the India Gate, bringing together people with disabilities, their friends, families and supporters to draw attention to the needs of the disabled. The celebrations usually centre around a common theme that reverberates across celebrations organised throughout the country by our partners and other disabled peoples organisations.

The celebrations historically end with a symbolic Walk to Freedom, cautioning against complacency and reminding the sector of the work that yet needs to be done to ensure empowerment of people with disabilities.
