Our Mission

Sister Cities of Durham is driven by a mission to connect our vibrant North Carolina community with cities around the world, promoting cultural exchange, fostering global relationships, and enriching the lives of our local residents.

Our core values include facilitating cultural exchange programs that celebrate diversity, educating the community about global cultures and issues, and striving for community development by leveraging our international connections to enhance the social, economic, and educational well-being of Durham.

We engage the youth through educational initiatives, empower the next generation with a global perspective, and work to build sustainable, mutually beneficial partnerships with our sister cities. Our ultimate goal is to promote peace and understanding on a global scale by transcending differences and fostering a sense of shared humanity, making Durham a more inclusive, connected, and harmonious community.
