School of Champions - Children of the Dump

The Isa Mundo Foundation visited the School of Champions and the Children of the Dump organization near Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. We sent 30 boxes of school supplies to the School of Champions in May 2006, becoming the first official project of Isa Mundo. We learned from this current visit that the School has accomplished incredible things and have provided education to many children in the area.

In the past 10 years, the organization has not detached itself to its mission of helping children realize the promise of a better life. In addition to providing education, the organization serves breakfast, lunch and hot meals to 2,300 children each school day. It has created an after school classes for 130 to 150 children from grades 3 to 6 and operate 9 day care centers, each with a capacity of 25 children ages 3 ½ months to 3 ½ years.

Isa Mundo was able to bring donations to the School with the help of Mrs. Tiggy Winkle's toy store. We have committed to donate much needed educational games and language learning tools to the school in the near future.

The World of Diaper Pins

Isa Mundo is learning many things about the world of diaper pins through their work with the Mi bébé y yo Project in Lake Chapala, Mexico. After having visited the Project in December of 2007, Isa Mundo learned how rare diaper pins are in the area which is needed to complete the gift baskets that the project donates to mothers and new born babies in Guadalajara. Isa Mundo started looking for a supplier willing to donate diaper pins and after countless emails and phone calls we finally received an answer from April MacKinnon, owner of Nurtured Products for Parenting, a mother operated online business. April felt very moved by the work of the Foundation and agreed to form a partnership with Isa Mundo and donate the much needed diaper pins, as she mentioned, “I stand with your foundation that children are our future, regardless of where they live on the planet, and it is our job as parents to help those less fortunate.”
