MRhutfam4

Greater Newburyport/Bura Alliance is a Sister Cities International organization that fosters friendship, cultural understanding, and mutual respect between the people of Newburyport and Bura, Kenya. It was founded in 1992 as a non-profit Massachusetts corporation.

GNBA has partnered with Kenyans in programs in health, education, and community leadership.  It has sponsored training in leadership skills and HIV/AIDS education. A current program plans to bring three Kenyan teachers to area schools this spring to “share the teaching experience.”

Visitors are welcomed at monthly pot-luck supper meetings.  They ordinarily occur the first Sunday of the month.  For info call 978-270-3941.
