About International Understanding and International Mindedness

Along with the United Nations, ISA inspires projects from UN special dates to commemorate them in more than a single date by giving children voice and choice; joining a project means giving them the chance to be, the chance to give and receive, the opportunity to experience the world despite all barriers and, as a result, we’ll have young adults that have learned to understand that the world trascends their community and own traditions.
