Luis De La Calle Foundation hosts several innovative social welfare programs. We believe that inclusive experiences have the power to shape individuals while leaving a positive, lasting impression.
Wings to Learn Empowering children – Human Rights Education
Wings to Learn Empowering children focuses on how music can be used as a tool in Human Rights Education for holistic human development. The full development of character through music/music education by understanding who we are according to the mentioned links between ancient Eastern and Western traditions. This education will contribute to being able to solve problems from our daily activities by adopting the right consciousness according to our true identities.
To be human means more than survival on a material level. The essence of humanity is in the connection that we share with all beings on the spiritual level. By addressing both material and spiritual development we can cultivate essential aspects of an individual’s overall development. Goes above and beyond to provide our learners with an empowering environment, offering them the opportunity to create and mold their own unique experiences through our wide range of activities where they can fully embrace their identity and gain all the skills they need to be leaders tomorrow. We see the true power that every individual holds, and we have made it our mission to transform them into natural-born leaders, ready to take on the world.

During the peak of the pandemic, an extraordinary melody of love and hope emerged, the Rainbow of Endless Love album. Internationally renowned flautist/composer, researcher, innovator, philanthropist, Dr. De La Calle, composed and performed melodies that were recorded and released worldwide by Sony Music International Japan, in November 2020. The songs were inspired by the Gita Govinda, a famous collection of Sanskrit lyrical poetries inspired by the soul’s love, in the eastern tradition.
The solidarity concert continues this journey of musical innovation by performing the ensembles of the Rainbow of Endless Love album in a novel setting with musicians from the UN Symphony Orchestra. Dr. De La Calle will perform as the principal soloist playing the De La Calle Quena FluteTM, along with a chambera orchestra conducted by Juan David Molano. The music arrangements and compositions for the orchestral performance will be prepared by Dr. De La Calle and Prof. Jorge Grossman, Director of Ithaca College Contemporary Ensemble (New York). The concert will include performances by children from the International School of Geneva. The musical ensemble will be a unique and novel fusion of musical styles and instruments from Latin American, Indian, and European cultures (classical, jazz, and pop/rock).
The proceeds from this concert will go toward educational and social aid projects in collaboration with Food for Life Global.
A video of the album is now available on the Official Sony Music YouTube Channel:

Book – Life of Dr. Luis De La Calle
Dr. Luis De La Calle is one of the most exceptional innovators in the music world. He lived and studied with the greatest music teachers in South America, Japan, India, and Europe for more than three decades. Through this journey, Dr. De La Calle grew not only as a talented flautist and composer, but it was also a journey of spiritual growth. Today, his artistic and pedagogical contribution is used by the UN to promote the achievement of the 17 DGS of Sustainable Development, with the aim of better living and peacefully prospering humanity. We believe that his contribution to humanity, recognized in the highest spheres, should serve as inspiration throughout the world. In order to share his journey with others as a source of inspiration, we have embarked on the production of his autobiography, which will be published in print and digital formats and in two languages, to begin with: Spanish and English.

The Luis De La Calle Foundation initiated various programmes to provide aid to underprivileged children, vegan food relief programme run provides food relief to malnourished and underprivileged children while simultaneously accomplishing many goals. The distribution of vegan, cruelty-free food promotes animal rights, teaching the value of plant-based meals for improving the health of body and mind while at the same time respecting the equality of all life, reducing the number of animals slaughtered for food. The distribution of plant-based meals promotes sustainability and respect for our environment, by minimizing the environmental impact, using less water, and having a lower carbon footprint than non-plant based meals.
