Rehabilitation & Reconciliation
Community Based Rehabilitation(CBR):

Community Based Rehabilitation (CBR) is increasingly being recognized as a highly effective inclusive development strategy. This programme focuses on capacity building in partner organizations in rural, semi urban areas and slum communities. Grassroots workers are trained to work with the persons with disabilities. Depending on the needs of the organization, specific partnership details are planned, worked out and evaluated together by both organizations in terms of objectives, time, and modality.

In community based programme the disabled person, the family, the community and health professionals collaborate to provide needed services in a non-institutional setting, in an environment where services for disabled persons are seriously limited or totally absent. In this context, these programmes are appropriate in addressing the needs of the disabled especially in the rural setting. Its essential feature is focused on partnership and community participation. The individual is not isolated from the community; family members and community volunteers are part of the rehabilitative process. This can help integrate the person into the community, which is prepared to value the unique contribution, which the person is able to make. Keeping in view, NSP has started the Community Based Rehabilitation (CBR) programme in Kanas & Brahmagiri Block of Puri district of Odisha state under Deenadayal Disabled Rehabilitation Scheme of Ministry of S. J. & E, Govt. of India, New Delhi. NSP not only provides life-changing rehabilitation to individuals, it also helps to reduce poverty, equalise opportunities and promote the inclusion of persons with disabilities in their communities and the wider society. One of the primary objectives of NSP is to amalgamate disabled people with the mainstream in all aspects of life, and help them lead a normal and dignified life.
