CBM Vision Statement

An inclusive world in which all persons with disabilities enjoy their human rights and achieve their full potential.

CBM Mission Statement

CBM is an international Christian development organisation, committed to improving the quality of life of persons with disabilities in the poorest countries of the world.

Based on its Christian values and over 100 years of professional expertise, CBM addresses poverty as a cause, and a consequence, of disability, and works in partnership to create a society for all.

Building an inclusive society

CBM works in the most disadvantaged societies, irrespective of race, gender or religion. CBM seeks to:
  • Reduce the prevalence of diseases which cause impairments.
  • Minimise the conditions which lead to disability.
  • Promote equal opportunities for economic empowerment, livelihood security, and full inclusion in all aspects of society for persons with disabilities.

CBM core values

Our core values underpin the way in which we behave and go about our purpose.
  • Christianity - We aspire to follow the teachings of Jesus
  • Internationalism - We are an international organisation
  • Professionalism - We aim for quality in what we do
  • Integrity - We are good stewards of our resources
  • Communication - We communicate honestly and respectfully
  • Inclusion - We promote and practice inclusion. The physical environment, legislation, communication facilities and our thinking and attitudes all have the potential to exclude and isolate individuals or groups from mainstream society. CBM will endeavour both within the organisation and externally to identify barriers, and implement solutions which lead to a more inclusive society.
