Our Values:

  • We champion inclusion.

  • We pursue excellence.
  • We embrace partnership.
  • We live with integrity.

While the world has been making progress in tackling poverty, people with disabilities are being left behind. CBM Global works alongside people with disabilities in the world’s poorest places to fight poverty and exclusion and transform lives. Driven by Christian values, we seek out and work with the most marginalised in society, irrespective of race, gender or religion, recognising the equal worth of every individual.

Drawing on over 100 years’ experience and world-leading expertise in disability- inclusive community development and humanitarian action, inclusive eye health and community mental health, CBM Global works with partners to break the cycle of poverty and disability and build inclusive communities. Our programmes across Africa, Asia and Latin America are developed and delivered with local partner organisations to ensure long-term transformation and accountability in communities we serve. We’re deeply committed to the principle of “nothing about us without us”, and we therefore work closely with and support organisations of people with disabilities.

CBM Global works in over 20 countries, maximising our impact through long-term, authentic partnership and a coordinated mix of inclusive community-based programmes, local to global advocacy and delivering inclusion advice to other organisations.

We draw on learning and evidence from our community work to inform our advocacy hand-in-hand with the Disability Movement at local, national and international levels, including with the UN, to achieve systemic change for people with disabilities. We advise governments, UN bodies and other organisations on how to ensure inclusion in their own organisations, policies and programmes to further amplify our impact.
