CBR Introduction Course

Since its onset in the early eighties, Community Based Rehabilitation (CBR) has evolved considerably. A paradigm shift is noted from mainly a medical to a more human rights model on disability, which connects CBR with mainstream development strategies. Nowadays CBR and Disability Inclusive Development (DID) are complementary approaches to pursue the same goal: develop disability inclusive societies. During this training, you will be introduced to the state-of-the-art developments in CBR and DID, building upon the WHO CBR Guidelines, the ICF and the UNCRPD. This course is a highly practical course, which focuses on the development of competencies in for instance context and needs analysis, project management including attention for monitoring and evaluation; community mobilisation, networking; lobby and advocacy. Yet, while there will be strong focus on the interventions that are needed to make society more disability inclusive, sufficient time will be allocated to review the importance of the individual needs and challenges as well.

The best comment we received during the final evaluation of the 11th International CBR Course in Pokhara (3rd-14th of March 2014): "You helped us discovering on our own." This resonates the basic CBR requirements: 

Go in search of your people,
love them, learn from them,
plan with them, serve them,
begin with what they have,
build on what they know,
but of the best leaders when the task is accomplished
the people will remark,
We have done it ourselves.
