Celebrating International Day of Persons with Disabilities

As an organization that is thoroughly dedicated to the protection of the rights of persons with disabilities, as well as to promoting inclusion and equal rights for all, «Dajte nam šansu» found a unique, creative and noteworthy way of observing the International Day of Persons with Disabilities.

The Association says that the participants took precedence over politicians at their event that day; they were more important than any obstacle, discrimination or inability to engage in everyday social activities.
