What started out as one traveler’s lust for adventure, pretty quickly turned into a major push for peace in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. After speaking with 5 boys in Eastern Congo, they were told the story of boys too small to carry a gun and sent to the front lines armed with a whistle. This story sparked a desperate need to promote peace in the Congo and in turn started the Falling Whistles Campaign.
By selling these beautiful whistle necklaces, the organization asks its supporters to be whistle-blowers for peace. The proceeds from the sales of the whistles are invested into Congolese visionaries, raising money to educate and rehabilitate war-effected people of the Congo. By wearing a whistle, you are protesting and raising awareness of the atrocities happening in the Congo.
