INTERNATIONAL WEEK OF THE DEAF: 19 TO 25 SEPTEMBER 2016

First launched in 1958 in Rome, Italy, IWD takes place annually on the last week of September. A truly global event, IWD is the only week in a year that sees highly concerted global advocacy to raise awareness about the Deaf Community on different levels.

THEME: WITH SIGN LANGUAGE, I AM EQUAL
This year, we gather once again to commemorate the 10th Year Adoption of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD), and acknowledge the recent adoption of the 2030 Agenda of the new Sustainable Development Goals."

This year, we are glad to promote this campaign to support the International Week of the Deaf through our social media channels. The WFD's key messages are uploaded on our attached link. In the meantime, you can look out for more updates on #IWD2016 from the Singapore Association for the Deaf.
