Grassroots to Global

Inequality is borderless. When the world listens to the one in five people globally who live with disability in poverty, we hear their stories of exclusion, marginalisation and disenfranchisement ringing across all continents. When the world listens, we can change; this is why CBM is committed to raising grassroots voices to be heard at all levels.


Over the coming weeks, CBM will be profiling topics being discussed at national and international forums on disability inclusion. This technical series will showcase the key challenges and learnings behind ensuring people with disability are included in all development efforts, across all sectors.
