CAPTION: Until the age of five, Naveen - who has cerebral palsy - was confined to his bed. That was the point at which he got his first life-changing surgery, after which he started to receive training from Mobility India. Rehabilitation Therapy Assistant (RTA) Kavitha patiently worked with him on a one-to-one basis, teaching him how to stand, balance and walk. Since then, he has been an enthusiastic participant at his local After-School Club (ASC). In this image, we see him standing on his own two feet at the front of his class, leading his fellow attendees in a Kannada literacy session under the watchful eye of his ASC tutor. LOCATION: Mallianpura (village), Kasaba (hobli), Chamrajnagar (district), Karnataka (state), India. INDIVIDUAL(S) PHOTOGRAPHED: Naveen Kumar N. (boy) and Vathsalakumari (woman).
