Since its inception in 1997, Swabalambi , at first worked in the in the area of Health which was the primary need of the people.

The Rehab Personnel of Swabalambi, with License from Rehabilitation Council of India identified several persons with disability of all categories with the help of World Vision India at the Dimoria Block. . The Community regarded disability as an incurable disease and left them neglected at home. Swabalambi organized Health Camps at the remote villages with Doctors from all departments of Guwahati Medical College . This helped the assessment of Disability and corrective surgeries. The families listened to the Doctor’s advice regarding  problems of their disabled members but took some time to agree to go through the required Corrective Surgeries of ENT, Eye, Orthopedic, free Cleft Lip and palate surgeries . The doctors provided free medicine from their samples to the Epileptic cases . Regular Physiotherapy and Occupational therapy to the people/children with Locomotor disability and Mental Retardation improved their condition. The positive impact on their health increased the community’s  trust in Swabalambi. This continued for a few years till CBR Forum introduced the CBR- Rights Based approach to Rehabilitation in Assam . CBR Forum supported Swabalambi’s CBR program in 04 GPs from the year 2005 to 2014.

CBR Forum established Swabalambi as one of the pioneer CBO in Assam. Now Swabalambi and the Block level DPO works in partnership with the  State Government for Issue of Disability Certificate and Aids/Appliances, free medicine for the epileptic cases and mental illness, free corrective surgeries in the area health, Inclusive Education, Advocacy and promotion of Social Rights and Empowerment of all persons with Disabilities within their communities.
