Since 1992, the United Nations International Day of Persons with Disabilities (IDPD) has been celebrated annually on 3 December around the world.
The theme for this year’s International Day is:
Theme for IDPD 2017: Transformation towards sustainable and resilient society for all!
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.
The main program of the observance of the International Day of Persons with Disabilities in Botswana is yet to be confirmed by BOFOD, hence we encourage to visit this page again for any updates.
