Comprehensive Community Based Rehabilitation in Tanzania (CCBRT) is a locally registered non-governmental organisation established in 1994. From its inception as a provider of Community Based Rehabilitation, CCBRT has grown to become the largest provider of disability and rehabilitative services in the country. Every year, CCBRT changes the lives of over 1 million people in Tanzania. Immediate impact is achieved through the provision of services and capacity building and wider long term impact is seen through the strengthening of referral systems, health education and the inclusion of disability into mainstream services. In a country of 45 million people, it is estimated that 3.5 million live with a disability.
