About CBM

CBM is an international Christian development organisation, committed to improving the quality of life of people with disabilities in the poorest communities of the world.

The world is making progress in tackling poverty. However, people with disabilities are being left behind. One in seven of us has a disability. That is more than one billion of people around the world, 80 per cent of whom live in low middle income countries.

Based on its Christian values and over 100 years of professional expertise, we address poverty as a cause and a consequence of disability, and work in partnership to create an inclusive society for all.

The emphasis throughout our work in poorer regions of the world is on local capacity development. This increases service delivery in the fields of healthcare, education, rehabilitation and livelihood development as well as organisational development of partner organisations.
