Calle Paz y Respeto is an inspiring group of former gang members from Alpachaca, Ecuador. In appreciation for all they learned from Prem Rawat and his peace education workshops, they wrote a song about it and recorded a music video. The group asked The Prem Rawat Foundation to post the video to help celebrate the International Day of Peace led by the United Nations.
This wasn’t the first year the group celebrated their transformation in song. They also collaborated with The Prem Rawat Foundation on a 2018 Peace Day video that reached over 4 million people.
During the COVID-19 pandemic the foundation has also been supporting Calle Paz y Respeto’s humanitarian efforts to deliver food and urban garden training to their struggling neighbors.
