Recycled orchestra: making instruments out of trash in Paraguay slum. Goodness in the world.

Tuesday, July 23, 2013

It is nice to be reminded of the good that can happen in this world.

This has nothing to do with healthy eating, but it has to do with healthy living. There is a settlement in Paraguay which is built on top of trash. People began to make instruments out of things that were found by digging through mountains of trash. Children from this poor area now have instruments made from trash. The village now has an orchestra with totally recycled instruments. This is a village where the cost of a violin is equal to a house.
I was inspired by the strength to make something positive from a very difficult living situation.
