Our Mission

Our MIssion Casa Baltimore/ Limay is a friendship-city project connecting the peoples of San Juan de Limay, Nicaragua, and the Baltimore, MD, region. We operate within a worldwide network of linked communities in poorer and wealthier nations working toward global justice and peace. Carrying our work forward cooperatively, we: * Facilitate travel that touches the heart through in-home visits between Marylanders and Nicaraguans, so that we may learn firsthand about each other’s lives and cultures and develop meaningful friendships. * Learn and work together for alternatives to corporate globalization, such as sustainable development and fair trade. * Maintain an equal working partnership between the Baltimore and Limay committees. * Support community development projects recommended by the Limay committee. * Promote greater understanding of Nicaragua by providing accurate, first-hand information about its current events and economic and political conditions, to the people in Baltimore and beyond. * Join hands with other justice and peace organizations, particularly those concerned with Latin American issues and Latino/a immigrants.

Our 30th Anniversary



In November of 2015, Casa Baltimore/Limay was 30 years old! At least, that’s when Nan and Phil headed for Nicaragua after we had a commissioning service for them and blessed their upcoming work. The committee actually began its work in the summer of 1985.
