The Importance of Accessibility

Posted on Fri September 3, 2021.

Today, on 3 September 2021, across South Africa, we celebrate Casual Day.

Casual Day is the National Council of and for Persons with Disabilities (NCPD)’s flagship awareness and fundraising project. This annual campaign has been running since 1995! The public’s contribution of R20.00 for a Casual Day sticker entitles them to express their individual interpretation of the yearly theme through their outfits, showing their support for the full inclusion and equity of persons with disabilities. This year’s theme is inspired by Disney’s “Ultimate Disney Princess Celebration”, which champions the qualities embodied in the chosen theme, COURAGE & KINDNESS. Two words that truly personify the differently-abled warriors that this campaign exists for.
