CBR and disability inclusive development

Enablement understands Community Based Rehabilitation (CBR) as a strategy that aims to improve the quality of life of persons with disabilities. This strategy involves working closely with persons with disabilities, their families, and stakeholders at the local, national and international level. These stakeholders can be community leaders (such as chiefs), religious leaders, school boards, neighbours, sports clubs, and not to miss: local and national governments. Together with all these actors we work to include persons with disabilities in every domain of community life. 

Disability Inclusive Development

Disability-inclusive development (DID) is an approach, which particularly focuses on the rights and inclusion of people with disabilities. It actively seeks to ensure the full participation of people with disabilities as empowered self-advocates in all development processes and emergency responses. Also, it works to address the barriers which hinder access and participation of people with disabilities..

Relation CBR and DID

Enablement sees CBR and DID as two roads leading to the same goal: realising societies in which people with disabilities like any other person - regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, race, class, religion, sexuality or any other characteristic - participate fully and are enabled to reach their full potential. Our documentary CBR for Inclusive Development gives a clear picture of how we see the reality of CBR and disability inclusive development in the field.
