In 2008, the first whistle was given as a gift to our founder when he returned home from eastern Congo. Since that time, we have been using the whistle as a tool to elevate conversation and unite a coalition of those willing to speak for peace in Congo.
Be a whistleblower for peace.
Congo is a beautiful country in the heart of Africa. It is also home to our world's deadliest war. Her people have endured over a century of conflict and exploitation, from King Leopold’s brutal conquest to today’s ongoing struggle for resources.
Falling Whistles began with a single story of a single day. In 2008, a young traveler backpacked into eastern Congo. There he met five boys being held in a military encampment. Our lives have never been the same.
