Clara Vista inspires leadership from within rural communities and empowers them with the tools they need to achieve their dreams. We’re talkin’ more than just basic needs here – we’re talkin’ dreams. It is up to the community to define what “quality of life” means to them, but our guess is that it means more than just running water and a roof over their head. Clara Vista works with community leaders to establish goals, identify root issues, prioritize needs, build relationships with local stakeholders, develop holistic solutions, and monitor community development. We are currently focused in the coastal village of Venado, Guanacaste, Costa Rica as a proof-of-concept of our framework and have high hopes of scaling up to nearby communities and even communities across the globe. We are a start-up organization so join us if you are self-motivated and have an entrepreneurial spirit!
All of our members are expected to be proactive and forward thinking in their participation; maintain strong communication; be accountable for their commitments; and continuously reflect and adapt their work to ensure it is appropriate and sustainable. Clara Vista has members across the globe thus we work remotely. All of our work is organized online and our meetings are over conference calls.
