About us

Karagwe Community Based Rehabilitation Programmes (KCBRP)

For more than a decade, KCBRP has taken lead in championing the rights of people with disabilities through promoting components of Community Based Rehabilitation (CBR) [1].

Although being settled in Karagwe, West-Tanzania, our long-term aim lies in enhancing the quality of life for persons with disabilities (PWDs) and their families on a national level. Our dream: People should meet their basic needs and experience inclusion in all areas. This includes: Free participation in public and private services, access and benefits from education, employment, health and social services.

Further objectives

Our History

We started our work in 2004 as a department of the Anglican Diocese of Kagera, rendering services to people with disabilities (PWDs) in Karagwe District and the surrounding regions. KCBRP was officially registered as an NGO that supports PWDs nation-wide in 2012 (Reg No: 00NGO00005511). Within the same year we started a strategic partnership with Liliane Foundation (read more [2]). Thanks to generous financial support we managed to acquire land where we (starting in October 2014 ) constructed four bigger buildings, including the “Benjamin Hall [3]” (where our office shifted to in mid of 2015), two accessible resting-facilities and a physiotherapy department.
