December 3rd is the International Day of Persons with Disabilities. The annual observance of the International Day of Disabled Persons was proclaimed in 1992, by the United Nations General Assembly resolution 47/3. The observance of the Day aims to promote an understanding of disability issues and mobilize support for the dignity, rights and well-being of persons with disabilities. It also seeks to increase awareness of gains to be derived from the integration of persons with disabilities in every aspect of political, social, economic and cultural life.
We are delighted to bring you some images from our partners in Embu, Kenya, and their UN Disability Day celebrations.
The images include an awareness parade, the day’s entertainment, the community looking at the Welsh side of our photo exhibition and appropriate paper-based technology (APT) devices, as well as members of a disabled people’s organisation.
