  • Since


The Anushkaa Foundation for Eliminating Clubfoot is working to eliminate incidences of clubfoot in children. It is involved in ensuring that no child Read moregrows up disabled due to clubfoot. According to the organisation, clubfoot is one of the leading forms of disability where one or both feet are turned inwards which when left untreated leads to painful conditions besides contributing to the disruption of education, social stigma and fewer employment opportunities trapping the individual in poverty. The Foundation runs its programs on tackling clubfoot partnering with Government agencies and other charitable organizations. It uses the Government healthcare system and network to carry forwards its treatment programs.


Approximately 33,000 children are born with Clubfoot in India each year, accounting for 19% of global Clubfoot births. Clubfoot is one of the largest forms of disability among children in the developing world. Unfortunately, in low- and middle-income countries, less than 15% of affected children have access to necessary treatment.


To ensure comprehensive care for children with Clubfoot, we are setting up weekly clinics in all districts of India. We primarily partner with government hospitals and select charitable and trust hospitals. By leveraging RBSK teams, ASHA workers, and other community health resources, we spread awareness and ensure early identification of Clubfoot. We provide counseling support to primary caregivers at clinics, telephonically, and through home visits. We are building the capacity of doctors through medical trainings so that each district has a doctor trained in the Ponseti Method. Additionally, we provide free foot abduction braces required during the treatment. Our web and mobile app encompasses all aspects of the program, including patient tracking, outreach, medical training, and inventory forecasting.

Demographies Served


Since its inception, Anushkaa Foundation has enrolled over 13,999 children, providing crucial support and treatment for Clubfoot. We have sensitized more than 97,958 Accredited Social Health Activists (ASHAs) and 4,037 Rashtriya Bal Swasthya Karyakram (RBSK) staff members, enhancing their capacity for early identification/detection of Clubfoot cases. Our dedication is reflected in the 183,269 patient visits we've facilitated at the clinics and healthcare centers we're associated with, ensuring extensive follow-up and continuous care. Our outreach extends to Community Health Centres (CHCs) and Public Health Centres (PHCs), with 8,340 and 7,694 visits respectively, ensuring that primary and community health facilities are equipped to handle Clubfoot effectively. Through 92 medical trainings, we have equipped over 270 doctors to handle Clubfoot cases effectively. Additionally, our Train the Trainer program has developed 32 master trainers, facilitating continuous medical education and creating a ripple effect of knowledge and expertise. Our efforts have resulted in remarkable outcomes, with retention and tenotomy rates both exceeding 90%. Nearly 98.8% of parents recommend Anushkaa Clinics, and 95% of primary care providers report high satisfaction with our services. Over 92% of RBSK staff members agree that our interventions have been helpful in treating children with Clubfoot, validating the effectiveness of our programs. Anushkaa Foundation is proud of these achievements and remains committed to ensuring that every child with Clubfoot receives the care and support they deserve.


  • Clubfoot Clinics

    The organization establishes clubfoot clinics in Government-run and charitable hospitals that operate once every week with an aim to help with early detection, timely intervention and helping parents with children having clubfoot to have access to relevant medical facilities, diagnosis and treatment.

    - 13,999+ Children enrolled since inception
    - 1,83,269+ patient visits carried out
    - 8,340+ visits to CHCs (Community Health Centre)
    - 7,694+ visits to PHCs (Public Health Centre)

  • Medical Supplies

    As a part of ensuring good quality treatment for the children, we also provide
    medical supplies to the clinics. This includes the casting material required during the correction phase of the Ponseti Method and bars and shoes – the two components that make up the foot abduction brace required during the maintenance phase. These are provided free of cost to the patient. As the child
    grows, we also upgrade the size of shoes and bars.

    The medical equipment support and the follow-up system has a tremendous positive impact on reducing the dropout rate of the patients. Hence, provision of bars, shoes and materials becomes a very crucial element of the program model.

  • Parent Counselling

    We prioritize comprehensive counseling support for primary caregivers, understanding its crucial role in our program. Our counseling services are delivered through various channels, ensuring accessibility and convenience:

    - At the Clinic/ Telephonic and Home Visits

    Parent and guardian counseling is essential to our approach. We provide detailed information about the condition, dispel myths and stigma, and emphasize the importance of treatment compliance. This holistic support system ensures that caregivers are well-informed and empowered throughout the treatment process.

  • Outreach Activities

    We implement our early identification and referral strategy in partnership with
    the government. Our outreach activities are targeted towards leveraging primary
    health care centers (PHCs) and community health centers (CHCs), district
    hospitals, Rashtriya Bal Swasthya Karyakram (RBSK), Accredited Social Health
    Activist (ASHA) workers, Anganwadi workers, Auxiliary Nurse Midwives (ANM) and
    other government stakeholders.

    The program includes a pre-course assessment and a post-course assessment
    which helps us in providing varying levels of support to doctors and mentor them.
