A local NGO service provider is taking a community mobilisation approach with local government and organisations, in a resource poor setting with limited national government engagement.

The approach to CBID in Cameroon’s Northwest Region involves a large local NGO service provider, taking a community mobilisation approach in a resource poor setting where there is some government attention and legal framework around disability but limited direct funding. CBM’s partner works with local government departments and service providers that are encouraged to take action on disability inclusion. The case study provides a good example of how local organisations can work to change existing systems to be more disability inclusion, rather than setting up parallel alternatives, even when there is not strong mandate or interest from national government.
