Who we are

Children Learning International Cultures (CLIC) Abroad is a non-profit organization founded by renowned photographer DK Bhaskar. We strive to capture the little-known cultures and untold stories of India through photography workshops staffed by American high schoolers in rural Indian villages. As these children capture each other’s cultures, they reveal the untouched innocence of a child’s perspective, and grow and learn through their shared experiences.
 

 
In a unique partnership with University Lake School, in Hartland, WI, CLIC Abroad is now a 501 c (3) non-profit organization, offering unique experiences to anyone who would like to enhance their knowledge of cultures and people. With ULS’s cooperation, we have set up a restricted scholarship fund to provide scholarships for ULS students in grades 9-12 to engage in unique International Intercession Courses as part of their ULS curriculum.
 
University Lake School is a not-for-profit 501c3. EIN: 39-0942763
 
 

CLIC Abroad Restricted Scholarship Fund

The CLIC Abroad restricted scholarship fund at University Lake School was established in 2012 to provide scholarship funds for students to engage in unique International Intercession Courses as part of the ULS grades 9-12 curriculum.
 
Awards are made to ULS students by the scholarship committee taking into consideration the established criteria. These courses are created to extend our students discovery beyond our campus providing hands-on meaningful learning, leadership and service. The CLIC Abroad restricted fund will enable students to fully participate in a ULS education and allows students to participate in this course, rather than having their options limited by household income.
 
Students may inquire to University Lake School for the application and award process details of this scholarship fund. This course integrates the following components into every trip: academics, service learning, leadership activities, cultural immersion experiences, and a rich experiential approach. Specifically, students will learn to identify and document the vanishing cultures and changing landscapes of the people living in rural areas of different cultures. Documentation will be achieved primarily through the use of photography.
 
All funds donated to the CLIC Abroad (a restricted fund of University Lake School), whether income or principal, and whether acquired by contribution or otherwise, shall be devoted to scholarships and directly related expenses and course supplies.

Our Mission

CLIC Abroad shall provide educational workshops to identify and document the vanishing cultures and changing landscapes of the people living in rural areas of India. Documentation will be achieved primarily through the use of photography. By empowering the local people to document their own lives, CLIC Abroad creates a set of images that will aid in recording and archiving vanishing cultures. These images will serve as powerful instructional tools depicting cultural diversity and the ancient cultures of India, and will be shared with educators and individuals in both contemporary urban cultures and future generations throughout the world.
