Mrs. Tiggy Winkle's

Great news! Mrs. Tiggle Winkle’s, an Ottawa based toy store full of creative and innovative playthings, is donating educational games to Isa Mundo. We will be bringing the supplies to the Children of the Dump's School of Champions in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. This school is located a few steps away from the main garbage dump of Puerto Vallarta. The school is doing wonderful things for the children and the surrounding communities - it is a place where children can find refuge instead of having to work in the dump picking up garbage and whatever else they need for their survival. The school's main goal is to empower children through education in order to have an opportunity for a better future.

Thank you Mrs. Tiggy Winkle’s!

Aandolan - Turn Your World Around

Isa Mundo has formed a partnership with a non for profit organization called Aandolan, which is Hindi for 'movement for change' and headed by 16 year old Tara Suri. We learned of Tara's work after seeing her CNN profile for Young People Who Rock and spoke of her work to implement social-change initiatives and provides youth with the tools to become changemakers. Aandolan is entirely run by teens and sees youth as a powerful force capable of effecting global change. Tara was also named Cosmo Girl 2007 for developing H.O.P.E (Helping Orphans Pursue Education) and her tireless work for the Turn Your World Around initiative.

Tara and Aandolan have agreed to form a partnership with Isa Mundo on orphanage projects in Guatemala and the Philippines. Stay tuned ...

Launch of the Light Up A Home Campaign

April fools day! We are launching our first ever campaign called Light Up A Home Campaign! In partnership with Engineers Without Borders, Isa Mundo Foundation is hoping to Light Up all 35 homes in the village of La Nueva Providencia, Guatemala; a new Mayan village, which has a sustainable water source but lacks electricity. For only $45 you can provide a home with an LED light and a solar panel used for charging. These LED MightyLights’ are one-of-a-kind long-life, low-cost, maintenance-free, environmentally-friendly light, that can last up to 30 years.
