Don Bosco Roga
Don Bosco Roga is an orphanage in Asunción ("Roga" means "House"). It was opened in 1988 by an order of Salesian priests, and since then, more than 500 children have come through its doors. Many boys are abandoned by their families, but some are brought there by parents who are too poor or otherwise unable to care for them. Many boys find their way to Don Bosco Roga only after years of living on the streets. Sonidos de la Tierra has been partnering with Don Bosco Roga to offer the boys regular music lessons and access to instruments. We went there to learn more about how the Sonidos program has been impacting the boys’ lives.
