The Norwalk/Nagarote Sister City Project, founded in 1986, is a partnership for sustainable community development between the people of Nagarote, Nicaragua, and the Greater Norwalk Area of Connecticut. We seek to build friendship and understanding between the people of the greater Norwalk area and Nagarote and break the cycle of poverty in Nagarote’s poorest barrios. Our sustainable development projects for youth, housing, reforestation, scholarships, preschool, and micro-loans help the people of Nagarote help themselves. Each year, visiting delegations support technical and cultural interaction.
