CBM, through its partner SPARK, facilitated the formation of groups of mothers with children with disabilities during the 2011 drought by providing food rations and seeds to plant. Through the CBM post emergency community empowerment projects, the 38 members of the group have undergone various trainings to strengthen their capacity. The trainings included learning the importance of immunisation, nutritional needs for their children with disabilities, improved farming techniques and group dynamics.
