Equal World Campaign

 December 3 is designated as International Day of Persons with Disabilities and is dedicated to raising awareness and initiating dialogues on the rights of differently-abled persons. We at the DSSWA decided to make an initiative to invite people to join us as proud allies and to become a part of the Equal World campaign. We urged candidates to put images related to it as their status on their social media handles and to use the hashtags #IDPWD2020 and #NOTALLDISABILITIESAREVISIBLE.
