When is the 'International Day of Sign Languages' is observed on every year?
A)
September 22
B)
September 23
C)
September 24
D)
September 25

Correct Answer : Option (B) - September 23

Note :

The International Day of Sign Languages is observed every year on September 23 to raise awareness about the importance of sign language and protect the linguistic identity of people who are deaf and others who use sign language.
 
According to the United Nations (UN), sign language is a full-fledged natural language even though it is structurally distinct from spoken languages. Sign languages use visual-manual modality to convey the message.

The Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, an international human rights treaty of the UN, recognises the use of sign languages and gives it equal status to spoken languages. The convention also asks countries to facilitate the learning of sign languages.

International Day of Sign Languages Theme : This year, the theme for International Day of Sign Languages is ‘Sign Languages Unite Us’.

History of International Day of Sign Languages : The day was established after the United Nations General Assembly declared September 23 as the International Day of Sign Languages in 2017. The following year, the International Day of Sign Languages was celebrated as part of the International Week of the Deaf.
 
The date September 23 was chosen to commemorate the day on which the World Federation of the Deaf was established in Rome (September 23, 1951).
 
Significance of International Day of Sign Languages : Observing the International Day of Sign Languages every year is important as it aims to raise awareness about this medium of communication.
 
There are more than 70 million deaf people across the world, as per the World Federation of the Deaf. Among them, over 80 percent reside in developing countries. These people collectively use more than 300 different sign languages.
 
The resolution passed by the UN to establish this day acknowledges the need to provide early access to sign language and quality education in sign language for the growth and development of the deaf individual..

Project "Saaras" for menstruation health launched by Israeli embassy in Which city on 20th Sep 2022?
A)
Gurugram
B)
Ghaziabad
C)
Kolkata
D)
Hyderabad

Correct Answer : Option (B) - Ghaziabad

Note :

The centre was inaugurated on Tuesday(20th Sep 2022) by Naor Gilon, the Israeli ambassador to India as part of project “Saraas”, an initiative of the Israeli embassy in India, in collaboration with NGO Khushii, that aims at spreading awareness about menstrual health and hygiene, and building skills and capacity for women.
 
27 year-old Uzma Kazmi is popular among the women of Arthala village in Ghaziabad; it was she who helped them cope better with those “uncomfortable days” of the month by spreading awareness about menstrual health and hygiene and bringing within their reach cost-effective and eco-friendly sanitary napkins, “Saraas”.
 
Kazmi says the underprivileged women of her village had no access to “such luxuries” until a special centre in her village started manufacturing them at affordable rates.
 
Densely populated Arthala village, with small roads and narrow by-lanes criss-crossing the length and breadth of it, is located about 20km from the national capital of Delhi and houses an estimated 200,000 people, mostly belonging to lower income groups.
 
This manufacturing unit has been established with the help of MASHAV, Israel’s agency for international development cooperation.
 
The centre now has a team of 15 women who are mostly from Arthala and it also has a capacity to manufacture 10,000 sanitary pads a day. Each pack of 10 is priced at ₹20, which is much lower than the cheapest such product available in the market.The Saaras brand of pads are also completely natural and do not go through any process of refining and chemical washing, the women said.
 
“Most of the women here have no means to buy sanitary pads from local shops for about ₹35-40 a pack. And it’s not just a lack of means that is a hindrance to menstrual health -- there are also issues related to conservatism and a lack of education. But with increasing awareness, these women are opening up to their needs and opting for a cost-effective solution,” said Ruby, another member of the team..
