- World Disability Day
We at Trinayani use the occasion of World Disability Day every year to launch several initiatives towards propagating a more inclusive society.
In 2015, as part of the year-long Disability Awareness Campaign that Trinayani conceptualized, designed and conducted for Delhi Public Schools Pune, Patna, Coimbatore and Ludhiana, WORLD DISABILITY DAY EVENTS were also arranged for all the schools.

International Day of People with Disability (December 3) is an international observance promoted by the United Nations since 1992 which aims to promote an understanding of disability issues and mobilize support for the dignity, rights and well-being of persons with disabilities.
It also seeks to increase awareness of gains to be derived from the integration of persons with disabilities in every aspect of political, social, economic and cultural life.
Over one billion people, or approximately 15 per cent of the world’s population, live with some form of disability. Persons with disabilities, “the world’s largest minority”, often face barriers to participation in all aspects of society.
These barriers can take a variety of forms, including those relating to the physical environment or to information and communications technology (ICT), or those resulting from legislation or policy, or from societal attitudes or discrimination. The result is that persons with disabilities do not have equal access to society or services, including education, employment, health care, transportation, political participation and justice.
Trinayani has been celebrating World Disability Day annually, since the year 2007.
Below is the list of few World Disability Day Celebration documents over the years:
2014 saw us celebrating World Disability Day by staging our first large scale on-ground Inclusive Entertainment Show titled Yeh Hai Duniya Meri Jaan with massive support from our creative friends and the academic community of the city. This show was supported by Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Limited.
