To commemorate International Day Of Persons With Disabilities, we are joining the effort to fight for rights in the post-COVID era.

The global pandemic has taken its toll on many people across the world. Not many are aware of the challenges, barriers, and lost opportunities caused by the crisis to people with disabilities. Let us recognize that people who live with disabilities are among the most affected populations amidst the pandemic.

The World Health Organization estimates that there are approximately one billion disabled people globally, and digital accessibility is an integral part of their lives. The digital age has brought with it many new challenges for people with disabilities, especially in the wake of the pandemic. Only 2% of websites are fully accessible, even though about 20% of the population faces high barriers when engaging with online content due to inaccessibility.

Leveling the digital field for those with impairments.
