Project Details

The Community-based Rehabilitation for Social, Economic and Health Development (CBR SEHD) project has just completed its fourth year. The project aims to increase social participation and improve health and economic outcomes for people with leprosy and disabilities, by developing Self-Help Groups (SHGs).

Last year, the project achieved the following:
• 546 Self-Help Group members
• 48 people provided assistive devices
• 380 people trained in disability inclusion
• 6 cases of leprosy found by SHG members

Social Return on Investment
Twenty-one Self-Help Groups were given training and support to develop small businesses of their own, at a cost of $69 per group.

 

Supported by the Australian Government

The CBR and SEHD Project is supported by the Australian Government through the Australian NGO Cooperation Program (ANCP). Thanks to ANCP, this project is able to help improve the well-being of people affected by leprosy and disability in Timor Leste
