Funded by – CBM ( Christable Blind Mission)

Project Title: Community-Based Inclusive Development (CBID) 

Duration: November 2021 – December 2024

In the picturesque landscape of Batticaloa District, a transformative initiative is underway— the Community-Based Inclusive Development (CBID) project. With a strategic focus on inclusivity, climate protection, and the enhancement of income-generating opportunities, CBID seeks to shape resilient communities that thrive on environmental preservation and economic growth.

Empowering the Vulnerable: A Specific Objective

The heart of CBID lies in its mission to engage 2000 vulnerable individuals, including people with disabilities and women from vulnerable households (WHHs) in Batticaloa District. This dynamic project places special emphasis on fostering inclusive environmental governance and promoting sustainable livelihood development within the community.

Geographic Reach: 8 Divisions, 1 Vision

Spanning across 8 Divisional Secretariat (DS) Divisions in Batticaloa District, CBID’s footprint extends across Eravurpattu, Porathevupattu, Koralaipattu, Eravur Town, Manmunai North, Kattankudy, Manmunaipattu, Manmunai South, and Eruvilpattu. This wide-ranging coverage ensures that the benefits of CBID are dispersed and impactful.

Anticipated Impact: Results in Focus


Upon the project’s completion, 1850 vulnerable individuals, including 1500 people with disabilities and 350 WHHs, are expected to witness a substantial increase in income. This financial upliftment can be attributed to their active involvement in eco-friendly ventures and the adoption of improved practices in the agriculture and inland fisheries sectors.


CBID envisions the establishment of 150 vulnerable individuals, consisting of 120 people with disabilities and 30 WHHs, participating in group production ventures focused on eco-friendly products. This collaborative effort aims to reduce polythene usage through the adoption of sustainable practices within the community.


A pivotal aspect of CBID is its commitment to capacitate and advocate for local communities and Civil Society Organizations (CSOs). Through empowerment, these stakeholders become champions of governance practices in environmental protection, ensuring the sustainability and longevity of the initiatives undertaken.

In Conclusion: A Beacon for Sustainability and Inclusivity

In essence, the CBID project stands as a beacon illuminating the path towards resilience, inclusivity, and sustainable development in Batticaloa District. Through targeted efforts and community engagement, CBID aspires to create a lasting impact on both the environment and the livelihoods of vulnerable populations, setting the stage for a more sustainable and inclusive future. As the project unfolds over its duration, it promises to be a catalyst for positive change, leaving an indelible mark on the landscape of Batticaloa District.
