"Learning humility, purity and simple-living from those who don't take too much from the earth...
Targetting the problems of hunger, disease and oppression that sadden their lives...
Inspiring in each other trust, confidence and support for one another..."

  Summary

 

 

In India most of the people with disabilities live in rural areas, whereas a majority of the services are available only in urban areas. In order to provide community based rehabilitation services to all persons with disabilities, there is a need for inclusive development approach.
In order to ensure rehabilitation services reach all, there is a need to review the existing practices in CBR service delivery and explore new approaches.

 
 

  Achievements

 

 

To achieve the stated objectives, SRMAB had extensively networked with MOB, Sumanahalli Leprosy Rehabilitation center and existing Government departments viz: Disabled welfare department, District disabled rehabilitation center, Red Cross, and many local Organizations & Welfare clubs.

 

  Goals

 

 

SRMAB diversified its service delivery model from institution based to community based to ensure the reach to larger beneficiaries. The aim is to sustain, support & monitor the CBR movement which was built on social inclusion, empowerment of PWDs and their families on equal rights based approach and accessible social environment.
