The International Day of the World's Indigenous Peoples is celebrated each year on August 9th. Since our launch in 2006, we have supported the United Nation's message to protect and promote the rights of Indigenous peoples, specifically in countries and communities we work with. Our education projects have ensured that Indigenous languages are also in the forefront of curriculum development along with other languages taught to improve literacy.
Isa Mundo has also supported traditional agricultural practices that are promoted by Indigenous peoples and are deemed sustainable by community members for their own needs.
Indigenous peoples remain some of the most vulnerable groups in the world. Their traditional knowledge has shown to provide solutions to some of the challenges we currently face in environmental and social issues. Today, we celebrate and commemorate their languages, knowledge and cultures that continue to inspire and contribute to the world.
