The Leicester Masaya Link Group is a non-governmental organisation which manages the town-twinning link between Leicester and Masaya in Nicaragua. Official twinning was established in 1987 and since then, the LMLG has worked to develop and maintain an exchange of contacts between the two cities by co-ordinating projects aimed at enriching life in both cities.
The LMLG is a registered charity (No: 1088684) with two objectives:
The LMLG aims to foster mutual understanding and friendship between the people of Leicester and Masaya, by celebrating the diversity of our respective cities. The link ensures that the global issues which affect our sister city in Nicaragua are as important here as they are in Masaya.
As well as facilitating practical projects that promote sustainable development on the ground in Masaya, the LMLG contributes to the provision of development education and global awareness raising across all sectors of the community, by organising exchange visits, cultural activities, projects in schools, speaker meetings and other public events in Leicester.
Our next AGM is on Monday 27 November 2017 at City Hall, Leicester. Click here for the programme
