Boca Education Project

Mundoers were on-site this week and visited the Boca school.  We are happy to report that the IMEC is doing well and many activities are being held inside the centre.  During our visit today, we were able to see students participating in various English literacy and reading lessons led by Maestra Cynthia and a volunteer.

We observed closely the interaction between teacher and students and more importantly, how the IMEC laptops and library have become part of their daily school curriculum. This allowed us to assess that we could expand in 2019 by providing additional space and technology to allow more students to access the IMEC.

We were also able to coordinate another visit next week by Mundoers (Ed and Jo) to meet the Boca students and bring another teacher from Yelapa as a guest to assess the education project in the village.  In the future, our goal is to launch an IMEC in the village of Yelapa. Stay tuned!

Visit to Casa Connor / Pasitos de Luz

We are happy to be back and enjoy the day with the children and staff at the new Casa Connor, the new home of Pasitos de Luz program. We are always grateful for the opportunity to visit and learn from some of the most inspiring people doing important work in the community.

We were glad to see old friends, happy faces of children, and learn about new projects and challenges on how to sustain and improve the services provided in the facility. We participated in dance activities, play time, helped feed the children, learn about energy use and met with the Founders (Peter and Teena) on plans for 2019!

We are discussing how to launch or support Pasitos de Luz in the coming year and will be looking for new partners and volunteers to brainstorm ideas that we can implement to contribute to existing services at Casa Connor. If you have any advice, please contact us at

PS. We introduced the youngest Mundoer to the world during this visit.  Meet Eva, the little sister of Sila.  We are hoping that the two of them find inspiration during these trips and take Isa Mundo farther than we ever think is possible.
