Black History Month

February is Black History Month and provides all of us the opportunity to celebrate the many contributions, influence and achievements of Black and African Canadians in our communities and cultural landscape of Canada. But it is also a time to highlight the continued inequality, oppression and racism endured by the Black community and our shared responsibilities to address anti-Black racism in all its forms along with systemic racism.

Isa Mundo is committed to support Black non-profit and charitable groups providing services and aid to various organizations and tackling continued racism and inequalities that are facing the Black community. Isa Mundo has supported and donated this month to the Support Black Charities organization (SBC). SBC is an "online portal that connects Black-led and Black focused charitable organizations to supporters and allies in the community. Our mission is to inspire compassion and generosity while increasing visibility of organizations serving the Black community worldwide."

Isa Mundo provided support to upgrade SBC's website to improve user experience and increase its marketing to raise brand awareness and visibility. We hope that our contribution will allow SBC to continue its work in serving the Black community in Canada and worldwide through the dedicated work of Black non-profit and charitable organizations it partners with.

To learn more about SBC and it's work, visit the Support Black Charities website.

The DREAM Project

We wanted to highlight a charity in Dominican Republic that has been doing work since 1995. The DREAM Project supports various youth initiatives that have transformed lives of thousands of youth through education, leadership training and socio-economic opportunities. 

DREAM's vision is that all children born in the Dominican Republic have the opportunity to receive an education and learn to their full potential. It is our hope that our efforts can be multiplied to allow the opportunity for every child’s gifts and challenges to be met with support nationwide. It is our goal to break the cycle of poverty and change peoples’ destinies. It is our dream that the world will be a better place for the children and families of the next generation.

We are inviting members and volunteers who might be traveling to Dominican Republic in 2022 to visit DREAM and meet its staff, students and community members. This is one organization that we have been waiting to collaborate with but we will need to do a site visit to assess the best way to support the organization based on our capacity and resources. We look forward to the day Isa Mundo visits DREAM and forms a partnership to help the youth of the Dominican Republic.
