Ibrahim (62 years old) is the owner of a survival yard in south west Niger. He lost his left leg when he was 25 years old. It had to be amputated after bone infection. Now he works daily in the survival yard.

CBM has recently published a ’Disability Inclusive Development’ (DID) Toolkit to support staff and partners to build capacity and knowledge on disability inclusive development. It has been designed as both a self-study guide, as well as a resource to support those undertaking training and capacity development with colleagues and partners.

The Toolkit comprises of 4 chapters, an introduction and glossary.
