October 2015 - Mexico Project Site Visits

Isa Mundo Foundation will make its annual project site visits in the state of Jalisco this month. The team will land in Puerto Vallarta to visit ongoing projects that are making a difference in communities. Our focus in the area has largely been in the Volcanes community where we support an education initiative and attempting to develop and Life Skills Program at the Volcanes Primary School.

Paul Lorilla (Director and Chair, Education Projects) will visit the IMEC and school staff at Volcanes and asses how to continue improving education opportunities of students. Paul will also see the newly launched Volcanes Sewing School that has been developed to provide training to women in the community with the goal of increasing employment opportunities in the future.

Andrée Lacasse (Chair, Children & Youth Projects) has been invited to visit and participate in a life skills program class with a local teacher and her students. This is a great opportunity to learn and observe first hand a program being used that we can support and perhaps fund as a formal Isa Mundo Life Skills Program.

We also hope to visit the Casa Connor facility being constructed to see its progress and to learn how to better support this important project. We look forward to meeting our colleagues and friends in Jalisco and continue building strong partnerships with local non profit organizations in the area.
