Small whistles….a symbol of the 3Cs–chic, cool AND conscientious! Falling Whistles are a symbol of protest against child soldiering in the Congo.
The newest style is smaller than the original Falling Whistle. This smaller version honors ” 5 boys”, the first child soliders who Falling Whistles founder Sean met while traveling in the Congo. The boys were forced to fight on the frontlines of the Congo, considered enemies of the state. For those who are too young to carry weapons, they are sent to the frontlines armed with only a whistle. They are just a few of the thousands of child soliders fighting daily in the deadliest war of our time.
The Falling Whistles movement…
Falling Whistles is a non-profit organization that donates 100% of profits towards a rehabilitation center for child soldiers in the Congo. Their whistles champion those who have spoken up in the face of injustice, who they call whistleblowers.
“The boys were the origin. Their courage that birthed our symbol. That symbol is now a movement.”
