IMEC in Granada, Nicaragua

In partnership with Soccer Without Borders (SWB), we are in the process of developing a second Isa Mundo Education Centre (IMEC) in Granada, Nicaragua. Isa Mundo has partnered with SWB in the past as their volunteers brought the first set of technological supplies to Empowerment International to create the first IMEC in Nicaragua. 

SWB has launched their Granada Education Program to facilitate positive secondary school outcomes and empower students to reach their full potential. One of the barriers to success is access to teachers, computers, internet and education software and tools. Isa Mundo has always been supportive of similar goals and we have committed to partner with SWB by providing much needed laptops to complement their program.  

Isa Mundo has been working with Mary McVeigh, the Co-Founder and Executive Director of SWB, to use their volunteers traveling to Nicaragua and bring the first batch of laptops to their school. We would like to thank UPS Store #501 in Vancouver for helping us with the shipping of these laptops and for supporting other projects in the future.

We will keep you all updated on the progress of the 2nd IMEC in Nicaragua. To learn more about SWB's education project click on the Granada Education Program.
