Our Vision:

To enact real change for the future; to reach as many children as possible and, through play, fun, and the expression of positive feelings, to build an appropriate environment for healthy growth.

We are an institution located in the rural zone of San Ignacio in Nayarit, Mexico. We dedicate ourselves to playing with children from the community.

We are a club, a squad, a group of kids and adults who are changing the future of the community, one village at a time, Mexico and out to the world.

Through fun, motivation and learning we promote positive and healthy expression. We also offer therapy and psychological help to the kids and their parents and create activities, such as camps, lectures and food projects by season, that work towards the integration of the community.

We use arts, play, sports, creativity, and fun as tools for learning growth, belonging, and change in the lives of children and adults. We work through rewards, not punishment, through motivation not yelling.

clu3About The Land:

Owning the land will give a strong sense of home to La Casa Clu and the children who call it their “Club House” and the adults who provide the heartfelt contribution that is called for. La Casa Clu is a Mexican NGO (not for profit) and the land will belong to that entity. There is a pride of it “being theirs” that will be taken to a whole new level and a strong sense of place and safety of “not having it taken away” that will become even more available and secure the future for La Casa Clu for next generations.
