  • Clic Abroad distributed solar lights to villages along the Cauvery River  in Southern India…

Clic Abroad’s most recent work is “Elephants in the Coffee” a Film by students

Elephants in the Coffee’ shows how expansion of coffee plantations ​ in Southern India turned the living god Ganesh into the ‘elephant menace.’

Now agricultural conflicts are driving an effort to force the world’s largest land mammal into the world’s largest cages.

The once-nomadic Jenu Kuruba tribesmen have been called upon to create permanent camps on National Forest lands. Troublesome elephants are captured and imprisoned in giant wooden cages. There, the elephants are forced to submit to Jenu Kuruba mahouts, who will be paid by the government to care for the animals for the rest of their lives -– often 60 to 80 years.
