Thanks to the Inter-American Development Bank the celebrated Paraguayan Landfill Orchestra is coming to the Kennedy Center in Washington DC on August 27. If you are in the area, it is a must see. Here is the release from BID.
Merrill and Boots Raber have been working for more than 5 years on capturing the first 40 years of the history of Kansas Paraguay Partners. I have read a draft and it is a compelling story. There have been so many Kansans and Paraguayans who have volunteered in a host of important projects. For a totally volunteer organization with a meager budget but the great support of Partners of the Americas it is amazing what has been accomplished. Here is a link to a brief video of Merrill talking about the project that was put together by POA.
