Soccer Without Borders

Soccer Without Borders (SWB) is a not for profit organization dedicated to use the sport of soccer as a vehicle for positive change in the lives of marginalized youth around the world. SWB provide programs to youth in disadvantaged communities through sport-based and extracurricular activities. One of the countries that SWB has completed their work is Nicaragua. Upon learning that SWB staff and volunteers will be travelling to the city of Granada in May 2011, Isa Mundo contacted the organization to request their help to deliver our netbooks that will be used to create the first Isa Mundo Education Centre in Nicaragua.

Isa Mundo partnered with SWB and was able to deliver the netbooks successfully to our volunteer in Nicaragua to set up the IMEC at Empowerment International. We would like to thank SWB for their support and we hope to find a way to work together to complete a future project in Nicaragua.

Introducing Café Roma's Kids Program

Isa Mundo Foundation has found new friends and partners in Mexico. We would like to introduce the Café Roma's Kids Program to our supporters and we happy to also announce that we will be partnering to complete our 3rd Isa Mundo Education Centre (IMEC) project in the Volcanes School outside of Puerto Vallarta. Isa Mundo recently completed a site visit at the school and decided that we have the capacity to contribute to improving the education facilities in this school.

Café Roma's Kids has been involved in supporting education and social programs in the Puerto Vallarta region by providing school supplies, funding teacher's wages, hosting fundraising efforts and even creating Pizza Party days to help feed less fortunate children in the area. The organization decided that they wanted to get involved with another school in the poor Colonia of Volcanes and immediately began supplying teacher assistants and school supplies to students. The organization also envisioned starting a computer centre as part of the students' curriculum and this idea fits well with Isa Mundo's IMEC concept.

We are looking forward to this partnership and we hope to finish our 3rd IMEC project (and the first) in Mexico with the help of the Café Roma's Kids Program. Stay tuned for updates!
