| Wednesday | 4th December, 2019
THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: To mark the International Day for Persons with Disabilities, Kovalam beach and adjoining areas became the focal point of a campaign for improved access of differently-abled persons in tourist spots.
As part of the third edition of the ‘Blue Ramp’ initiative, carpets of blue were laid out on the beach for better accessibility of differently-abled children.
The aim of Blue Ramp is to give children with special needs a chance to experience the beach.
In 2017, the first edition of Blue Ramp was conducted at Shankumugham beach.
Kovalam beach was the venue of the second edition as well.
