WDSD2022: #InclusionMeans..

February 21, 2022

Celebrated on 21 March annually, World Down Syndrome Day is a global event to raise awareness and exemplify the abilities of persons with Down syndrome while advocating equal rights for them. 21-3 is a unique set of numbers as it signifies the genetic condition of persons with Down syndrome – presence of the third copy of chromosome 21.

This year, we are asking:

What does #InclusionMeans

Full and effective participation and inclusion in society” – United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UN CRPD)

Empower people around the world to advocate for full inclusion in society for people with Down syndrome and disabilities, and indeed for everyone” – Down Syndrome International (DSi)

“Inclusion” echoes DSA’s effort to raise awareness awareness and showcase the abilities of persons with Down syndrome while advocating equal rights for them. With a receptive and accepting community, our beneficiaries are greatly inspired in developing their skill sets and independence to achieve their maximum potential to lead a more fulfilling life

Words have the power to lift people up. Leave a note of encouragement or share with us what #InclusionMeans to you. Together we can empower people around us to advocate for full inclusion in society for persons with Down syndrome.
