CAPTION: All schools in Kasaba hobli have ramps for wheelchair users, though few were built for the benefit of disabled students; rather, they were put in place for election purposes, to enable disabled voters to attend polling booths during elections. Many, like this one, lie unused and in deteriorating conditions where there may not even be any wheelchair users. Meanwhile, other aspects of school accessibility - such as signs with text that's too small for the visually impaired - go unaddressed. The Chamkol programme therefore provides for School Inclusion Audits and Plans to be carried out by Pupils' Clubs with a view to correcting these flaws. LOCATION: Budhitittu (village), Kasaba (hobli), Chamrajnagar (district), Karnataka (state), India. INDIVIDUAL(S) PHOTOGRAPHED: From left to right: Sanjana (above), Pradeep S.
