San Marcos Sister Cities Committee
Mission and History
The Concord-San Marcos Sister Cities Committee encourages peace and mutual understanding, and socioeconomic development in Nicaragua, through programs of cultural exchange and economic assistance carried out in a spirit of cooperation by the people of the Town of Concord and the city of San Marcos, Carazo, Nicaragua. The Sister Cities Committee was established in Concord in 1986 by vote of Town Meeting. Its value and importance were reaffirmed by Town Meeting in 1987. The Committee is affiliated with the Concord-Carlisle Human Rights Council. Voluntary membership of Concord citizens and voluntary financial support from citizens around the Boston metropolitan region sustain the Committee’s work.

Twenty-five years of cooperation between the two towns have brought about significant achievements. Many Concord citizens have visited San Marcos, and Concordians have had the privilege of receiving San Marcos visitors in Concord on various occasions. Generous contributions from citizens of Concord and supporters from neighboring towns have provided an opportunity for the committee to donate over $100,000 of humanitarian aid to the people of San Marcos. This has taken the form of a fully equipped dental clinic, a medical vehicle, medicines and medical supplies, school furniture, computer hardware and software, sports equipment, clothing, and funds for the improvement of recreational facilities, scholarship funds, the construction of a well in a rural community, and the capitalization of a micro-bank.
