Review for Newton San Juan Del Sur Sister City Project Inc, Newton, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

For 20 years, the Newton Massachusetts - San Juan Del Sur Nicaragua Sister City Project has made a dramatic difference in the lives of literally thousands of residents of this city on Nicaragua's Pacific coast. Today the Project has deep relationships with actors throughout the community, and dozens of local and international volunteers, in the fields of childhood and Adult Education -- including the indispensible Free High School -- and Appropriate Technologies, including drinking water systems, kitchen-smoke evacuation, and sanitation. The collaboration is two-way, with many San Juanenos visiting their northern sister city. The Sister City project is a model of international cooperation, and deserves the support needed to sustain and grow its activities.
