About International Understanding and International Mindedness
Becoming empathetic, internationally-minded, and aware of the diversity of cultures and points of view that the world entails cannot be reached only through a structured curricula.
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.
Get involved in our joint projects, and help us promote “that leading is not doing what I think/want, but understanding what the others need.”
