CBM India celebrates 50 years of working for inclusion
December 9, 2017
CBM India believes that inclusion needs an engagement that connects newer audiences with the vision of an inclusive society.
On the occasion of CBM's 50 years in India, CBM conducted a series of activities including a national level photo and short film contest 'A barrier free world for all" for people with disabilities and students.
Over 200 entries from across India sent in images which they feel can help raise awareness on disabilities.
The winners of the contest were facilitated at the ceremony by Mr. Varghese Chandy, Vice President at Malayalam Manorama.
CBM also held a conference on "Making Delhi A Barrier Free City" which included photo exhibition in New Delhi in October, 2017.
The conference was well received and drew in more than 200 people and students.
CBM will be hosting its last activity of the year with a photo exhibition in Bangalore at St. Joseph's college of Arts and Science on 8th and 9th of December.
