Grab Lunch – Help Others!

Join us for our Goodwill at the Grill, benefitting Hartford/Ocotal Sister City Project! September 27, Grab a Burger (Beef or Veggie), Chips and drink for a $5 donation!

The Hartford/Ocotal Sister City Project is a story of two cities reaching out to each other, one in Nicaragua, Central America, the other Connecticut in the United States. It begins in 1986 when the Hartford Ocotal Sister City Project(HOSCP) was established with the help of the Capitol Region Conference of Churches and moves forward again in 1995 when the Project began providing seed money for a micro-lending program called FUNAFAM, which is based on the Grameen Bank model. Financial support from this program has helped hundreds of Ocotal women start small businesses of their own.

Over a period of 25 years HOSCP has used contributions to help fund the following programs, evolving from direct material aid to self-help initiatives:

◾Material aid shipments in conjunction with the New Haven-Leon SCP

◾Educational events

◾Helping to fund the purchase of an ambulance

◾Helping to fund the clean water project

◾Hurricane Mitch relief

◾FUNAFAM, a microcredit program based on the Grameen Bank model. Loaning small amounts of money to individuals starting small businesses

◾Health education programs in outlying areas surrounding Ocotal

 

Many of the founders of the HOSCP are still active in the work.

The sister-city commitment does not go out of fashion, nor does it cease to inspire those involved.
