Why Do We Exist?

CBM India exist to build an inclusive society where persons with disabilities can achieve their full potential.

For over 50 years, CBM India had worked alongside persons with disabilities in some of the poorest communities across India. By working directly with persons with disabilities, other disadvantaged populations, and partner organizations, by influencing policy at all levels, and by inclusively responding to emergencies and natural disasters, we strive to remove barriers that hinder a person’s full and equal participation in society.

Why Persons with Disabilities?

About 21 million people in India live with disabilities!

Disability is both a cause and consequence of poverty. Poverty causes disability due to limited access to good nutrition, adequate health care, clean water, or unsafe working conditions. A person with disability is less likely to have access to rehabilitation, education, and employment, making it difficult for them to escape the vicious cycle of poverty.
