Here at CBM we’re really excited to be part of the Campaign for Australian Aid.
The campaign is a unified movement made up of organisations from across Australia. Together we are calling on all Australians to stand up for one of our greatest national accomplishments – our aid program.
This is a campaign for all Australians who believe we can and should do more as a nation to end extreme poverty around the world.
Join the campaign today and be kept up-to-date with everything you need to know to help make sure we remain a fair nation that stands up for Australian Aid.
Watch how Australian Aid transforms lives
In recent history the world has come together and made progress towards a fairer, better world.
And thanks to Australian Aid, we've all played a big part in this change.
CBM's for Australian Aid because it supports people with disabilities to help them reach their full potential.
Australian Aid helps us help children with disabilities go to school for the first time...
It provides life-changing surgery...
It gives people with disabilities the training they need to earn an income and support their families...
And it helps build the self-confidence of people with disabilities to advocate for change and make informed decisions about their rights and needs.
Through Australian Aid, all Australians are doing their fair share to help eliminate poverty...
promote sustainable and inclusive development...
and promote the human rights of all people.
We're for Australian Aid.
In recent history the world has come together and made great progress towards a fairer, better world.

the impact of Australian Aid
Quincy's world fell silent literally overnight.
Eight year old Alex is happy to share his table.
An apprenticeship program has helped Cletus find a job.
Quincy’s world fell silent literally overnight after a case of the mumps left her profoundly deaf. But this 12-year-old’s life is just like any other child thanks to CBM’s generous supporters and the Australian Government. Now Quincy and her community have learnt sign language. Quincy even has a sign interpreter in her classroom, opening up a whole new world of learning possibilities!
In places like Cameroon, children with disabilities can often face exclusion and rejection, and are unable to access basic services like education. Thanks to Australian Aid, programs like the one that taught Quincy’s village sign language are becoming more common and are helping children like Quincy to reach their full potential.
Eight-year-old Alex is happy to share his table with his classmates – after all, that’s part of what makes learning fun!
Alex was born with cerebral palsy, and he has been on an intensive rehabilitation journey since he met a CBM community worker. It has taken the community worker years to help Alex sit and stand, and even though walking alone isn’t possible right now, Alex received a wheelchair to help him get around.
In the poorest places like Tanzania, children with disabilities are often excluded from opportunities to go to school and gain an education. But through Australian Aid, more and more programs encouraging disability inclusion will help children like Alex to attend school and reach their full potential.
Australian Aid works to create a better and fairer world by helping people in developing countries access services that can improve their lives.
With support from Australian Aid, people like Cletus are accessing new opportunities through apprenticeships.
An apprenticeship program helped Cletus find a job as a medical clerk, working in the local hospital to maintain important hospital records. The training provided gives people like Cletus the opportunity to learn new skills, gain employment and make contributions towards their families and communities. Finally, people who graduate from these apprenticeships boost their local economy through the income they earn and spend. It’s thanks to Australian Aid that these programs can continue to help people like Cletus gain skills and independence.
