Our Vision and Mission
If you are poor, you are much more likely to have a disability because of poor nutrition and unsafe working conditions, as well as lack of access to medical care, clean water and sanitation. The negative impact of climate change is being tangibly felt by communities in countries across the Global South and it brings into sharp focus the disproportionate effect that climate change is having on people with disabilities. The discrimination and exclusion faced by people with disabilities in health, education, and livelihood, for example, results in an increased risk of vulnerability and the likelihood to become and stay poor. But this vicious cycle of poverty and disability can be broken.
At CBM Global, we have a vision for an inclusive world in which all people with disabilities enjoy their human rights and achieve their full potential.
We are driven by our mission: Fighting to end the cycle of poverty and disability.
