“Rights Awareness Month” (Persons with disabilities)
November 1, 2017
Cabinet in 2013 approved that November 3 to December 3 be observed as National Disability Rights Awareness Month, and that December 3 be observed as the National Day of Persons with Disabilities.
This provides the country with an opportunity to showcase and celebrate progress made in realising the political and socio-economic rights of persons with disabilities as guaranteed in the Bill of Rights, including the rights to equality, dignity and self-reliance.
We launch the 2014 National Disability Rights Awareness Month within an environment of the current Administration re-committing government to build on the gains made during the first 20 years of democracy, in improving the lives of persons with disabilities.
