The Norwalk/Nagarote Sister City Project is a partnership between Nagarote, Nicaragua, and the Greater Norwalk Area of Connecticut, focusing on sustainable community development and breaking the cycle of poverty for the most disadvantaged children and youth in Nagarote, in accordance with our values:
- We value education, community service, leadership development and environmental and economic sustainability.
- We value empowerment over charity.
- We value a long-term sustainable relationship and cross-cultural experiences between our communities.
- We value the democratic process, human rights, and social justice for all people.
Our major focus is on the children of Nagarote with our pre-school, youth, and scholarship programs, but we also provide support for housing, re-forestation, and micro-loans, helping the people of Nagarote help themselves.
