CAPTION: Aishwarya's legs are so weak, she cannot stand without support. She also goes through long periods of constant crying. During the earliest days following the birth of a child who has (or develops) a disability or special needs, parents often struggle to work out what they can do for him or her, and could use more information and firmer direction. Under the Chamkol programme, such children aged between zero and five and their mothers, expectant mothers and women of child-bearing age will be able to get this through health, wellbeing, development and pre-school programmes run through Early Years' Clubs. LOCATION: Mallianpura (village), Kasaba (hobli), Chamrajnagar (district), Karnataka (state), India. INDIVIDUAL(S) PHOTOGRAPHED: Nagamma H.S. (left) and Aishwarya (right).
