The dayextends an opportunity to initialize action to reach the target of full and equal pleasure of human rights andcontribution in society by disabled persons, launched by the World Program of Action for Disabled Persons, declared by the UN General Assembly in the year 1982.

History of United Nations and Disable Persons
Over the period of the UnitedNations' first 50 years, disable persons have become importantly proactivein asserting empowerment and confidence in their own respective abilities to lead self-dependent lives. The following precise history represents efforts by the UNwhich have endorsed their efforts.
The foundation of The UnitedNations was based on the principle of equality for all. The Preamble to the United Nations Charter states the elegance and worth of every human being and provides elementary significance to theadvocacy of social justice. Disable Persons are entitled to all the fundamental human rights declared by the Charter and their human rights instruments.
The General Assembly launched the foundation for the protection and promotion of human rights in the year 1948, when it endorsed the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Article 25 of the Declaration proclaims thateach person has "the right tosecurity in the event of unemployment, sickness, disability, widowhood, old ageor other lack of livelihood in circumstances beyond his control.”
The Theme of 2009 “Empowering Persons with Disability with a Right to Act”
On 3rd of December, 2009, and throughout the week starting from this day, peopleacross the world joined together to recognize the persons with disabilities expressing support, and enhancing awareness. This year was focused on the right to act. People with disabilities should be assisted and supported by other people of their own free sweet will in taking their decisions, was the objective of this year.
The right to act is universally endorsed as a fundamental and basic humanright. Its implementation as a right to all individual seems so rudimentary that we forget that for persons with disabilities, the right to work is not always imperative. In terms of physical, institutional and attitudinal barriers, disable persons are often refrained from theirright to act.

Today, change is imperative!
The Committee on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities had called upon all states to revise the laws, practice andregulations in their respective country in tune with the Convention on this particular day of recognition. It was a call for the end of discrimination for all disabled persons and the endorsement of the right to act, as a basic and fundamental virtue for everyperson all over the world.
This day provides us with a chance to make a dedicated commitment to the principles of entrusting powers to the disabled persons with the right to act.

Activities conducted on this day include:
*.Conducting days of discussion and campaigns raising awareness on the theme of right to act.
*.Ensuring that legislation ensured that the disabled people are provided with the right to select helps on their own free will.
*.Revising policy to enable all persons the capability to open and handle bank accounts including disabled persons of any kind;
*.Taking measures to extinguish the guardianship method and to replace it by aprocess in which persons with disabilities are assisted only in their own decision making.

The Actual Facts and figures
The World Health Organization affirms that there are 600 million disabledpeople living worldwide, about almost 10% of the entire earth population. It is also evaluated that about 80% of these disabled peoplelive in developing nations.
Globally, it is assumed that one in every ten people is a person with a disability and recent studies states that persons with disabilities populates up to 20 per cent of the population living in under poverty line in developing countries.
