Kilkili works for the differently abled child

Kilikili is a network of parents of children with disabilities, which aims at making parks accessible to all children, regardless of their ability. Kilikili roughly translates to "wobbling, laughter of a child" in Kannada and was born out of a single question in December 2005. "Isn't it strange that no differently-enabled children can be seen at public parks? Where do parents take them to play?" wondered Kavitha's husband. He had, unwittingly, initiated new beginnings.

Kilikili's efforts bore fruit in the summer of 2006 when Coles Park in Bangalore was chosen as the first Public Park where modifications would be made. It is the nation's first Universally Accessible Public Park.
