Since 2015, CBM Australia has tracked how the economic situation of people with disabilities and their families in rural India has changed, as a result of our Community Based Inclusive Development project. Here’s what we found.
The study shows that not only are people with disability more accepted and active in their community, their access to a variety of income sources has improved. While Covid-19 has impacted on that in the last two years, people with disabilities and their families feel they are more on the same level as other households in their villages. This is a significant change compared to 6 years ago when our work with them began.
