We want to play too!

Early last week, I heard of the consultation with children and other stakeholders to frame guidelines on play spaces in Bangalore’s parks that BBMP had approached Kilikili to help develop. I was glad that this event included kids but expected adults to hog the limelight. So, it was a pleasant surprise to see that the latter, namely, Kavita Ratna and Roshni Nuggehalli from the Concerned for Working Children, Prarthana Unkalkar of iVolunteer Bengaluru, Usha Bala from the Association of People with Disability, Kavitha Krishnamoorthy and Kanika Mittal of Kilikili, Joy Srinivasan from Makkala Jagriti, Amrutha, a consultant for children with autistim and other long time child rights campaigners only facilitated the proceedings with assistance from parents, teachers, caregivers and volunteers. Around 60 children that these and other organizations like Samarthanam Trust for the Disabled and Spastics Society of Karnataka support and engage with, participated enthusiastically in the session on 8th January, between 10 am and 4 pm at Cubbon Park.
