The word "disabled" is defined as having a physical or mental disability: unable to perform one or more natural activities (such as walking or seeing) because of illness, injury, etc. The word disabled came to be used as the standard term in referring to people with physical or mental disabilities in the second half of the 20th century - and it remains the most generally accepted term in both British and US English. Lately, "Disability" and "Disabled" are terms that are undergoing change due to the disability rights movement in the U.S. and U.K. To a lesser extent this is occurring worldwide - Disability or Disabled - Which Term is Right?
On December 02, 2015 OBS observed the World Disability Day with our CSR partner Dar ul Sukun aiming to promote an understanding of disability issues and mobilize support for the dignity, rights and well-being of persons with disabilities. A seminar was organized in collaboration with Dar ul Sukun to promote the UN theme of this year "Inclusion matters, access and empowerment for people of all abilities.” The seminar was also aimed to seek an increased awareness of gains to be achieved from the integration of persons with disabilities in every aspect of political, social, economic and cultural life.
OBS shall keep striving to make a difference in people’s life, through various means and platforms. We intend to set the impetus in force to make our society well aware and sensitized towards the unnoticed lot from our masses. It about to change the paradigm and take disabled persons as differently able persons.
