What We Do

CBRS Vision/Mission/Goal

Vision

A society which respects the rights and dignity of people with disabilities and those who are marginalized and disadvantaged, and which gives them the opportunity to fulfill their potential on an equal basis.

 Mission

CBRS works in the Western Region of Nepal, with and for people with disabilities (including women, those from Dalit, ethnic and disadvantaged communities), seeking their empowerment and fulfillment of their human rights.

As an organization, CBRS does this by providing services which help to reduce poverty and give rehabilitation (social, physical, educational and vocational/economic) as well as working locally, regionally and nationally with NGOs, government and the private sector to ‘mainstream’ disability. CBRS is a non-political, secular and non profit-making social organization that works in a participatory way with its service holders and stake holders.

Goal

To improve the daily and future quality of life of the target group so that they live as normally and independently as possible in their communities, and can access basic rights such as education, health care and a livelihood.
