Today, millions of girls with disabilities are missing out on school

Together, let’s make sure that every girl, everywhere can go to school, dream of a bright future and flourish. 

About us

At CBM UK, we’re creating lasting change for millions of people with and at risk of disabilities in some of the world’s poorest places.

We work alongside people with disabilities, their families and communities, making sure they have access to healthcare, education and a future where they can thrive. Rooted in Christian values, we believe that everyone should get the same chances in life no matter where they live in the world.

Our impact

Over 1 billion people worldwide have a disability, and a staggering 80% live in low- or middle-income countries. We’ve been on a mission to end the cycle of poverty and disability since 1908, and with the help of generous supporters like you, we’re getting closer every day.
