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 showed that not only are people with disabilities 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 previous two years, people with disabilities and their families felt they were more on the same level as other households in their villages. This was a significant change compared to the preceding six years, when work with them begun.
