Community Based Rehabilitation "RBC"
It is a community development strategy for rehabilitation, equalization of opportunities and social integration of people with disabilities.
It is applied thanks to the combined efforts of disabled people themselves, their families, organizations, communities and relevant government and non government services in health, education, labor, social, and others.
Main objectives of CBR
- Ensure that people with disabilities can maximize their physical and mental abilities.
- Promote access to services and equal opportunities to all people.
- Encourage people with disabilities to become active partners in their community and society in general.
- Encourage communities to promote and protect the rights of persons with disabilities through changes in the community.
"Respect for the evolution of the capacities of children with disabilities and their right to preserve their identity."
Regular Education: pre-school and elementary school framed within the curriculum required by the Ministry of Education with curriculum adaptations to the needs of each child or young person.
Special Education: personalized education tailored to the individual needs of children and young people, taking into account their personal skills.
Integration and Social Inclusion: Promoting the location of the child or teenager with disabilities in regular schools in their area.
Concerned about the situation of many children from Cartagena, REI Foundation for Integral Rehabilitation IPS is interested in finding a way to help children and young people with disabilities in order to provide necessary the elements for their full development. In this way through institutional management, resources for supporting this population are obtained.
However, resources are not sufficient to ensure the full development of our children. Desertion in most cases is evident due to lack of financial resources of families.
This is how we knock on the Community’sdoors in general and we undertake the job of obtaining financial support according to the needs of the child or young person with disabilities.
The purpose of the project is to find people interested (sponsors) whose contributions help the child or youth with disabilities successfully culminate the processes of education and habilitation/rehabilitation.
