GO Campaign continues to help Recycled Orchestra achieve its mission to bring music education to underprivileged children in the city of Cateura, Paraguay. Cateura is a city whose 7 neighborhoods were virtually built atop a landfill to house over 2,500 families. The organization builds its own instruments, using recycled materials from the local landfill ­ a practice which has garnered global media attention in recent years. This grant will support the music programs and orchestra, specifically through the hire of new music teachers as well the creation of more recycled instruments.
