This charity pairs Norwalk, CT with the city of Nagarote in Nicaragua. The mayer of Nagarote asked the project to help with youth in one barrio in his city where crime was high. The project has established a preschool set up youth after-school projects organized sports activities, etc. and as a result has eliminated youth gangs, lowered school drop out rates and and given hope to the poorest of chirldren. Many of the project kids are now entering college. In effect the programs have worked to turn poor kids into middle class kids with plans and hope of the future. All of this has been done with a tiny budget! This is truly a project that is a model for changing the world... one child at a time.
