  Gift  a  pair  of  shoes,  give  a  stride  for  excellence!  
 

 

A  journey  through  India’s  hinterland  offers  a  glimpse  into  the  cultural  richness,  family   traditions  and  bonding  that  is  fast  dwindling  elsewhere  and  a  way  of  life  that  has  lived   through  generations.  Children  in  these  communities  play  in  agricultural  fields  and  walk  miles   to  school—rain  or  shine.  They  form  the  aspirational  modern  day  rural  India  and  they  stand   on  the  verge  of  transformations  that  define  and  shape  their  future.  Yet  they  often  lack  one   thing  important  for  their  spirited  sprints  to  the  wide-­‐open  world  –a  pair  of  shoes!     CLIC  Abroad  team,  a  non-­‐profit  organization  working  closely  with  Nikon,  Goal  Zero,  North   Carolina  Nature  Research  Center  and  the  Centre  for  Sustainable  Development  visits  the   remote  and  rural  landscapes  regularly  and  documents  many  changes  in  the  rural  Indian   society.    Together  with  our  work,  we  also  help  the  children  in  every  location  with  something   new  and  helpful  from  solar  torchlights  to  sports  kits.  On  our  next  trip,  we’d  like  to  take  a  gift   for  the  Indian  children  in  our  workshops  –  A  pair  of  shoes  and  socks.     CLIC  Abroad  engages  children  from  both  India  and  America  to  develop  intellectual  skills,   encourage  positive  and  competitive  growth  on  a  personal  level,  and  foster  a  spirit  of   international  understanding  and  entrepreneurship  through  the  medium  of  digital   photography  and  visual  documentation.  When  CLIC  Abroad  leaves  a  community,  the   children  there  are  left  with  a  greater  awareness  of  their  own  culture,  and  of  the  West.     For  those  children  from  the  remote  and  rugged  landscape,  a  pair  of  shoes  will  go  a  long  way   and  help  them  heal  the  pains  from  treading  the  fields’  everyday  in  barefoot  and  help  them   acquire  a  new  sprint  in  their  strides.  It  motivates  them,  brings  happiness  and  acquires  a  new   liking  for  their  surroundings.       In  March  2013,  CLIC  Abroad  will  travel  to  Pragpur  Village  in  the  Kangra  Valley  in  the  foothills   of  the  Himalayas.  As  part  of  our  workshop,  we  intend  to  donate  a  pair  of  shoes  to  the  village   children.  Each  pair  would  cost  about  $12.  The  shoes  will  be  purchased  and  distributed   there  in  the  Kangra  Valley,  which  will  help  build  economic  relationships  and  reduce  the   challenges  of  shipping  from  the  United  States.     CLIC  Abroad  is  a  tax-­‐exempt  organization  under  the  umbrella  of  University  Lake  School   (501c3;  EIN:  39-­‐0942763).  Please  give  $12  to  bring  a  smile  and  change  the  way  a  child  walks   in  a  remote  landscape.  

Mail  your  tax-­‐deductible  donations  to,   Attn:  CLIC  Abroad,  University  Lake  School,  4024     Nagawicka  Road,  PO  Box  290,  Hartland,  WI  53029   Sincerely     Bhaskar  Krishnamurthy   For  questions  /  inquiries  –  mail  to  bhaskar@clicabroad.org  /  call  –  706.504.5659
