About the organisation
CBM is an international development organisation devoted to improving the lives of people with disabilities in the poorest places on earth. Through its 110-year history and over 30 years in Australia, it has developed proven programs that help millions of people benefit from real, lasting change in their everyday lives and communities.
CBM’s vision is for an inclusive world in which all people with disability enjoy their human rights and achieve their full potential. Globally, 1 billion people have a disability and 80 per cent of them live in developing countries. People with disabilities routinely face barriers to their access to healthcare, education, work, political and community life, leaving them stuck in the cycle of inequality, isolation and exclusion that leads to the most extreme forms of poverty.
