Social Inclusion of Persons with Disabilities in Sri Lanka through Community Based Rehabilitation (CBR) – CBID
Human rights and fundamental freedom of CWD and YWD are ensured for their full participation in all dimensions of community life
Social Inclusion of Persons with Disabilities in Sri Lanka through Community Based Rehabilitation (CBR)
The project will directly target 1080 Persons with disabilities (PWD), particularly children and youth with disabilities and their parents/caregivers in the three DS divisions – Manthai West (Mannar district), Manthai East (Mullaitivu district) and Vanathawilluwa (Puttalam district).
Considering the lessons learnt from previous projects, and as the proposed project targets CWD and YWD specifically, it is assumed that 30% of the estimated number of PWDs will be directly reached through project activities, such as KIM camps, and village level events, that have broader scope. This estimated reach includes majority of Children with Disabilities (CWD), and Youth with Disabilities (YWD) and a significant proportion of PWDs of other age categories.
