This is a story about a young girl, who lives in a neighborhood in Paraguay where money was earned from recycling rubbish. Favio Chávez, an environmental engineer, started giving music lessons to children. Because so many children wanted music lessons, and there were not enough instruments, recycled materials were used to create instruments. The Recycled Orchestra later became renowned musicians!
