CBM is a global leader in disability inclusive development, devoted to ending the cycle of disability and poverty.
Our work, supported generously by our loyal supporters and the Australian Government, was founded more than 115 years ago on the core Christian values of: social justice, human rights, compassion and servant leadership.
These same values guide our staff and organisation today. They inspire us to walk beside people with disabilities in some of the poorest communities around the world; to serve, empower and enable each individual and their community.
“You insult your maker when you exploit the powerless. When you are kind to the poor you honour God.” Proverbs 14:31
Following in the footsteps of Jesus, our work is dedicated to ensuring all people can achieve their full potential, irrespective of race, gender, age, location, religion or social status. Our work reaches those who, because of disability, prejudice and social stigma, are the hardest to reach.
Together with you, we work to transform the lives of more than five million people each year. During our 45-plus years in Australia, hundreds of thousands of people have supported our vision and mission.
We are unwavering in our commitment to leaving no-one behind and ending the cycle of poverty and disability. And we invite you to continue, or join, this mission with us.
