Training Programme for CBR Managers

CBR Network (South Asia) is an international NGO (Non-Government Organisation) actively involved in Training, Research, Consultancy, Information exchange, Advocacy and Publishing activities in the field of Disability and Rehabilitation. Started in 1993 to break the isolation of NGOs, CBR Network believes in the holistic union of human needs and capacities, through Community Based Rehabilitation and focuses on meeting the needs of persons with disabilities, without disintegrating and isolating them from their families and communities. CBR Network has been very active in accomplishing the snowballing effect through Dissemination of information, Technical support, Training, Planning and Management of CBR programs as well as Research and Publications.

Rationale:
The needs of persons with disabilities are the same as their able bodied peers. Such needs cut across all sectors. Moreover, as the community represents disabled persons of all ages and different stages of life, different sectors come into play. No one sector on its own can respond to the comprehensive needs involved in the rehabilitation process. CBR programmes should seek to meet the needs of disabled persons of various aetiologies and of all ages with a cost-effective approach without underestimating how people and existing services within the communities can contribute.

UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities is throwing new challenges .CBR has to change and will change to meet the millennium challenges. The proposed training for CBR managers helps to understand and develop strategies for the implementation using CBR philosophy.

In order to meet the challenge of establishing cross-disability CBR programs with Multi-sectoral approach the personnel involved should know how to develop a more comprehensive approach to rehabilitation making use of all the available human, material and infrastructure resources. Its philosophy is rooted in a realistic understanding of existing institutions, holding the middle ground between overloading and under-utilizing the communities, between horizontal and vertical, between purely center-based and home-based. There are no particular formulae for CBR. Such programmes require creative Managers with knowledge and vision on the true face of ‘disability’ and of ‘rehabilitation’ in their own country or region.

The Training Sessions for CBR Managers wish to promote this approach to CBR, incorporating Management and Social Work Principles and techniques alongside protecting the Rights of every individual in the society.

    The Mwanza Computer Literacy Project

    The Tusaidiane Disabilities Resources and Charity Organization of Tanzania (TDRCT) would like to improve computer literacy and self-employment opportunities for people with disabilities in Mwanza, Tanzania, and promote their empowerment.

    This organization is run by people who themselves have disabilities. I have known the man who founded this organization for some years. If his organization can quickly raise $5000 from 40 donors within a few days, then GlobalGiving will feature their organization on its website. This will enable them to attract more prospective funders. I have made a donation to them, I hope others will consider doing the same.
