CBM Global works alongside people with disabilities in the world’s poorest places to fight poverty and exclusion and transform lives. Drawing on over 100 years’ experience, we work with the most marginalised in society to break the cycle of poverty and disability and build inclusive communities where everyone can enjoy their human rights and fulfil their full potential. CBM initiated its work in Nepal since 1982 and supports a diverse mix of national partners engaged in Inclusive Eye and Ear Care, Rehabilitation, Education, and Social Inclusion of persons with disabilities.

CBM Global works closely with the national partners, including Organisations of Persons with Disabilities (OPDs), to implement multiple projects in Nepal. A wide variety of news and stories are generated during project implementation, which requires dissemination within CBM Global and beyond.
