CBM Vietnam wins prestigious Zero Foundation Award

Stories | December 13, 2021

CBM Australia congratulates our team in Vietnam and their partner organisation – the Aid for Social Protection Foundation – on being awarded the prestigious international 2022 Zero Project Award. The project was one of 76 awardees from 381 nominations.

This international award recognises organisations who are bringing useful changes that benefit people with disabilities and promote their rights. Their community based inclusive development (CBID) project ‘Promotion of Disability-Inclusive and Disaster Prepared Communities’, won an award for its innovative approach to mitigating the dangers of disaster events for people with disabilities.

Working in the northern mountainous province of Ninh Binh – an area that is prone to flash floods and cyclones – the project team established inclusive self-help forums in local communities and set up accessible, disability-inclusive disaster event shelters. CBM Australia supports projects like this in other parts of Asia.

The project followed CBM’s CBID approach, which focuses on removing the barriers causing exclusion for people with disabilities in all aspects of daily life. This is especially important in disaster prone areas.
