A shot video about the history of N/NSCP and its impact in Nagarote, Nicaragua.

 

A Message From The Mayor:

The Greater Norwalk area has demonstrated its caring support through service to the Nagarote community and generous donations by individuals and area businesses, and as a result of this generous support, an entire barrio has seen a sharp drop in drug and alcohol abuse, the elimination of teen gangs and a significantly reduced rate of teen pregnancy, and hundreds of severely disadvantaged Nagarote children have been able to attend school with scholarships from preschool through college.

- Harry Rilling, Mayor of Norwalk, CT
