Inclusive Practices Africa and the Division of Disability Studies in collaboration with Christian Blind Mission (CBM) presents Community Based Inclusive Development Practice.

Community Based Inclusive Development (CBID) has become the gold standard approach to ensure that people with disabilities, their families and their organizations are among the leaders in local development and have equal access to social and development benefits like everyone else in their communities. 

This course seeks to bring together academics and practitioners alike to share, exchange, and deepen our understanding of inclusive community development from various interdisciplinary perspectives. This course will close a much-needed gap in our current knowledge landscape.
As the first of its kind, the CBID course promises to be an exciting platform for intellectual discourse and learning.
