Bainbridge Ometepe Sister Islands Association

The Bainbridge Ometepe Sister Islands Association (BOSIA) began in 1986 with the mission of developing relationships and increasing understanding between the people of Ometepe, an island in Lake Nicaragua, and the people of Bainbridge Island. Over the years, connections have been developed in the areas of supporting education, health, people with special needs, coffee-growing, and community projects. But perhaps the work that best supports our mission is promoting people-to-people exchanges between Bainbridge and our sister island in Nicaragua. One Call For All donations help pay travel costs for Bainbridge students who need aid to be a part of our high school delegations to Ometepe and for Ometepinos who come to Bainbridge in various delegations – including health, English teachers, and anniversary delegations – who could not otherwise participate.
