Two Sister Cities... One Heart
Since 1986, the Norwalk/Nagarote Sister City Project (N/NSCP), also known as Hermanamiento Norwalk/Nagarote in Spanish, has been working to end the cycle of poverty for the children in the poorest neighborhoods of Nagarote, Nicaragua. We change lives through education, community service, leadership development and the promotion of economic sustainability.
Over the past 32 years, we have eliminated teen gangs and reduced teen pregnancy by offering stimulating afterschool programming for 110 teens. We have also educated more than 600 students by providing scholarships from first grade through college.
