Meet Jaime, the President of the Venado Neighbor’s Association. Thanks to Jaime’s leadership, over 100 people in Venado have reliable access to drinking water for the first time in history. With your support, Clara Vista can continue to work with leaders like Jaime. In turn, Jaime can continue to lead the community of Venado to accomplish their goals.

Michael has a unique style of leadership that relates to Venado’s youth, motivating them to get involved. With your support, we can provide Michael with materials for their reforestation effort, cleanup campaigns, and environmental signs.
Meet Iris and Gerardo – the coveted homestay parents. Iris is the Vice President of the Venado Neighbor’s Association and an incredible chef. Gerardo embodies a traditional tico lifestyle working with agriculture and hauling large items with his oxen. Listen as they reflect on how Venado has changed over the years.
Thanks to you, we're growing!
With your generous support, we are gaining momentum. Over the past few years we have already seen HUGE changes in Venado through the establishment of the Venado Neighbor’s Association, development of the Venado Community Center, and implementation of community-motivated projects. This year, we have launched our first internships and we are working with the Venado Neighbors Association to finish up a 5-year action plan of projects to be kicked-off in 2017!
We are at an exciting stage in our organization’s growth! With this exciting expansion we have really scaled-up our impact and we need your support. Our vision is strong, Venado’s capacity is growing, and we will soon have a list of community-driven projects to implement.
