The Fort Worth-Mbabane community center project was funded by Sister Cities International’s Africa Urban Poverty Alleviation Program (AUPAP). AUPAP is a 3-year program focusing of developing such partnerships in Africa. AUPAP aims at alleviating poverty in 25 African cities through water, sanitation, and health project led jointly by U.S. and African sister city programs. The sister cities come together to learn from each other and develop sustainable projects that will have a long-term benefit on the community.
Sister Cities International’s three-part “Africa Documentary Series” follows sister cities members as they embark on their journey to complete the project. In Episode 1 “Helping the Silent” and Episode 2 “Building” members of both sister cities, Fort Worth and Mbabane, asses local community needs, plan, and begin work on a community health center in the Swazi capital’s Nkwalini Zone 4. Episode 3 “Opening Doors” showcases the inauguration of the center amidst an excited public! Learn more about the new projects in the pipeline for the sister cities even as the center begins to make lives better for Mbabane’s residents!
Fort Worth Sister Cities International was one of the first programs to apply and be awarded a $115,000 grant from AUPAP.
