Our Mission

Promote peace through mutual respect, understanding and cooperation—one individual, one community at a time.

Sister Cities International is a nonprofit citizen diplomacy network that creates and strengthens partnerships between U.S. and international communities. We strive to build global cooperation at the municipal level, promote cultural understanding and stimulate economic development.

Sister Cities International is a leader for local community development and volunteer action. We motivate and empower private citizens, municipal officials and business leaders to conduct long-term sister city programs. We believe that sister city programs involve two-way communication and should mutually benefit partnering communities.

Our goals are to:


municipal partnerships between Honeoye Falls, NY and Borgne, Haiti.


opportunities for village officials and citizens to experience and explore another culture through long-term community partnership.


an atmosphere in which economic and community development can be implemented and strengthened.


environments through which communities will creatively learn, work and solve problems together through reciprocal cultural, educational, municipal, business, professional and technical exchanges and projects.


with organizations in the United States and other countries which share similar goals.
