World Down Syndrome Day, Here Are 5 Inspirational Figures with Down Syndrome –

World Down Syndrome Day is always celebrated on March 21 every year. In 2023, the theme being carried is With Us Not For Us, Mother.

World Down Syndrome Day was first celebrated in 2006. March 21 (the third month of the year) was chosen to mark the unique triplication (trisomy) of 21 chromosomes which causes Down syndrome.

The message With Us Not For Us is key to a human rights-based approach to disability. Launching from the World Down Syndrome Day page, this approach views persons with disabilities as having the right to be treated fairly and have the same opportunities as other people.



Just like the campaign and the theme for World Down Syndrome Day in 2023, in fact there are many inspirational figures with Down syndrome who get the same opportunity to pursue their dreams, Mother.

“We feel really good. It’s a beautiful thing that they do. Since Taz has had this publicity, I’ve been getting a lot of emails from people, usually parents reluctant kids down, saying how great Taz is and what kind of role model he is,” said Gylda, quoted on the Today page.
