The Norwalk Sister City Project does some incredible sustainable community development work in one of the neediest areas of this part of the world. As an active board member I have made numerous visits to our site in Nagarote, Nicaragua and I can really see the difference that our efforts are making. Because we hire a director to oversea our efforts we maintain a real hands-on sense of what is being done. On our last visit I think what really impressed me the most was to see so many of our young people who had been through the program, now working in various capacities as volunteers and paid workers. You could see the glow in their eyes and feel the sense of self worth that they felt towards the program and how proud they were to be helping to continue the work for the next generation. There is very little overhead in running our project and the money we raise truly goes directly to our programs
