Africa

CBM’s work in Africa is well-established, and aims to encourage independent and sustainable services accessible for persons with disabilities and inclusion through a rights-based approach. Partners in the Region have multiplied and comprise a strong network of specialised community services for persons with disabilities across our main mandate areas.
