End of Year Appeal

December 2019

We know there are many requests at this time of year and hope you’ll consider the Brookline-Quezalguaque Sister City Project in your end-of-year giving plans.

The deteriorating Nicaraguan economy has led to reduced local tax revenue and reduced aide from the central government making our support even more important than previously.

While we have not resumed volunteer travel to Quezalguaque, we have continued to support collaboration with the community. Our clean water initiative made real progress in 2019. As of this writing, we’re very pleased to report that there was significant infrastructure improvements made in all 7 rural well systems (MABES). With additional support we hope to make further improvements and move some of the MABES off an unreliable local power grid and on to solar power.

The community is also looking to the Sister City Project for continued support in historical areas of partnership (arts, health care and education) and new areas. We are now reviewing with the municipality a proposal for costly repairs and renovations to the library. We are also reviewing proposals for repairs and upgrades to computer classrooms.

The Sister City Project has no office or paid staff. Your donations go to support our partnership with the Quezalguaque community.

Tax-deductible contributions may be made on-line at BrooklineSisterCity.org or checks payable to the Brookline Sister City Project may be mailed to PO Box 114, Brookline, MA 02446.   

Thank you for your support.
Happy Holidays!
Richard Segan
President, Brookline-Quezalguaque Sister City Project
