Mexico - Project Site Visit October 2016

We are happy to announce that Isa Mundo will be traveling in October to complete the last project site visit in Mexico in 2016.  This is an opportunity to receive updates from organizations and projects we are currently in partnership with.

Isa Mundo will be discussing the launch of the new App project developed by Appnovation with Volcanes Primary School. It will give us the opportunity to see first hand how this project will improve education, safety and communication issues both in school and community. We are excited to see the result of how an idea was formed into something concrete and implemented in the community. 

We will also visit Casa Connor, a newly built facility developed to serve and enrich the lives of children with physical and mental disabilities in the Jalisco State area.  We are delighted to have been invited to do a private tour of the facility before Casa Connor opens its doors to children, families, staff members, friends and supporters.

We will provide an update on-site

Paul was recognized for his commitment to indigenous issues at the Department of Canadian Heritage and his humanitarian efforts through the Isa Mundo Foundation.  The Teresa Pires recognition is part of the Department's Deputy Ministers' Award which recognizes a public servant who has inspired his peers and motivate others to give back to their communities.

As stated in his nomination: "Paul approaches his career work with the same passion, commitment and practicality that leads to his success with the Foundation - while creating an inclusive and sharing environment.  The way he has balanced his many roles has been an inspiration and makes him a true public servant'.

Electronics Recycling Association

We have had a partnership with the Electronics Recycling Association (ERA) the past few years with the organization and its local staff becoming one of Isa Mundo's strongest collaborators.  Their focus on recycling electronic and technology products and donating them to various organizations that are in need, fits with our approach of: limiting supplies ending up in landfills; re-use products when possible; using technology to enhance and improve education; and become part of the larger community through volunteerism.

ERA's contribution to Isa Mundo Foundation has not gone unnoticed to the many students it has helped since 2013 in Mexico, Philippines, Nicaragua, Belize and beyond. The development of our Isa Mundo Education Centre (IMEC) is the start of our education projects in these countries, but without technological supplies and access to current information to enhance education beyond books - our IMECs would not be the success they are today. By having students access the internet for the first time and learn basic skills through Microsoft Office and hardware / software, their opportunities expand and education level improves.

We would like to again thank ERA for their support and commitment to improve education for less fortunate students worldwide.

2016 Project Site Visit - Coba

Today, Mundoers also traveled to Coba, about an hour bus ride from Tulum.  The town of Coba seems isolated but it has a great feel and passionate locals who are proud to live in an ancient Mayan City. We were able to see the important archaeological site and ruins that housed impressive pyramids, ball courts, temples and ancient roads.

Walking the town of Coba outside of the ruins we saw homes that incorporated ancient Mayan wall structures, small hotels, outdoor restaurants serving Mayan cuisines, a large plaza and a school.  There is a potential to partner with an organization already established in Coba working with locals citizens.

This has been a successful first project site visits for Isa Mundo and we will be assessing potential school projects in the area which will be our first in the state of Quintana Roo.  We will keep you updated on next steps and look forward to launching a project in the region.

Muchas gracias.
