Review for Norwalk Sister City Project, Inc., Norwalk, CT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Working to improve programs

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

In the US, everyone is a volunteer. In Nicaragua, the staff is hard working and very dedicated to the Project.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Serve many other communities in Nicaragua by replicating its effective and successful anti-gang programs.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2009

Role:  Volunteer & I help raise money for them.
