The Norwalk/Nagarote Sister City Project does a tremendous job with very little. For over twenty years the project has operated with no paid staff here in the states. All of the money has gone directly to fund the programs in Nagarote.

The Norwalk/Nagarote Sister City Project has had remarkable success working with at-risk teens in a desperately poor barrio in Nagarote, Nicaragua by providing after school activities including community service. Instead of getting involved with gangs and drugs, the youngsters created a tree nursery and grew more than 16,000 trees from seed over 4 years. They give the trees to residents who agree to care for them.
