The Fox Cities-Kurgan Sister Cities Program ended operations in 2014. The partnership between our communities has since that time been stewarded by Lawrence University, and any inquiries regarding current collaborations or opportunities for engagement should be directed to the University. This web site is maintained for posterity, sharing the work and the history of our more than 20 years of citizen-driven community collaboration between two regions on opposite sides of the world. Our programming has ranged from medical and health care development to the elimination of chemical weapons to domestic violence, rule of law, and educational development.
From 1990-2014, the Fox Cities-Kurgan Sister Cities Program led programming in civil society, health care, infrastructure development, chemical weapon elimination, education, and the arts.
