Enablement is a training, research and development institute that is specialized in Community Based Rehabilitation (CBR) and inclusive development. Enablement understands CBR as a strategy that aims to improve the quality of life of persons with disabilities. It involves working closely with persons with disabilities, their families and stakeholders at all levels to include persons with disabilities in every domain of community life.
We believe that CBR as a strategy for inclusion can only be effectively developed and implemented when CBR workers are trained to be agents of change, networkers and creative problem solvers. We enhance reflective reasoning as the core learning principle in building capacity. We try to contribute to innovation of educational approaches, tools and materials for anyone involved in CBR from grassroots to top management level. We are not satisfied with our interventions until persons with disabilities have an improved quality of their day-to-day lives.
