Watch Episode 2 of the inspiring Africa Documentary Series!
In Episode 1 “Helping the Silent” you saw members of both sister cities, Fort Worth and Mbabane, asses local community needs and plan a sustainable project in Swaziland’s capital. In Episode 2 “Building”, watch representatives from Mbabane travel to Fort Worth and work with local leaders to plan a community health center in their city. Follow them as they build a center that aims to ultimately empower the people of Mbabane.
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.
Fort Worth Sister Cities International was one of the first programs to apply and be awarded a $115,000 grant from AUPAP. Their progress is documented in a three episode documentary that chronicles their relationship and the project.
