Community-Based Rehabilitation Program (CBR)
Community-based rehabilitation (CBR) was initiated by WHO (World Health Organization) following the Declaration of Alma-Ata in 1978 in an effort to enhance the quality of life for people with disabilities and their families; meet their basic needs, and ensure their inclusion and participation.
Community-Based Rehabilitation (CBR) project of RSE&WS was started in collaboration with Punjab Welfare Trust for Disabled (PWTD). Since Sep. 2015 our two CRPs (Community Resource Persons) are providing home-based services to children and adults with Special Needs in the area of Bhatta Chowk. Currently, 52 children & adults with special needs are registered in our CBR project. We intend to gradually extend these services to Northern areas of Lahore.
