Did you know: Of the one billion population of persons with disabilities, 80% live in developing countries? One in every five women is likely to experience a disability in her life, while one in every ten children is a child with a disability. Disability inclusion is an essential condition to upholding human rights, sustainable development, and peace and security. The United Nations Disability Inclusion Strategy provides the foundation for sustainable and transformative progress on disability inclusion through all pillars of the work of the United Nations. We join in celebrating International Day of Persons with Disabilities this 3rd December.
Help the Spirit Community Foundation to provide the necessary support to young children and adults to develop this vision through the work we do with The League of Friends of the Blind (LOFOB).
