December 3 is International Day of Persons with Disabilities (IDPD), and on this Day WHO joins other partners around the world to celebrate a day for all. The day is about promoting the rights and well-being of persons with disabilities at every level of society and development, and to raise awareness of the situation of persons with disabilities in all aspects of political, social, economic, and cultural life.

  1. SVIMS observed the day by holding a special Sanctuary in respect of the specially abled or differently abled persons.

  2. Two students from Sem I, Ms. Jasmine and Ms. Simran Chhabria shared their experiences of being with differently abled persons.

  3. An E-Poster competition was arranged for the students. They were given two themes for poster making:    Theme 1 - Don't Judge a Disability by its Visibility, Theme 2 - Disability Inclusion

  4. Dr. Divya Lakhani, in her address to the students, shared her experience with one of the students who was blind and wanted to learn Accountancy. Ma’am shared that it was a learning experience for her too as that girl was one of the best candidates she had ever taught. The grit and clarity with what that girl understood the concepts was commendable. She asked the attendees to go through an exercise of blindfolding themselves and trying to work for half a day. This would make them value their life more and understand the difficulties faced by differently abled persons.

  5. She urged the students to register their names as scribes at various educational institutes for students who need this service to appear for exams.

  6. Ms. Sonali Joshi then played two videos

1. DISABILITY | How You See Me - YouTube

2. Disability Sensitivity Training Video - YouTube

The videos depicted real time interactions, experiences, thoughts and expectations for people from different walks of life, all specially abled, but with one message – treat us equal.

3. The event concluded with a vote of thanks by Ms. Sonali Joshi.
