When Delaware Valley (DV) senior Jonathan Langberg was looking for an Eagle Scout project, he happened onto the story of the Good Shepherd Academy in Cameroon, West Africa. It was founded with aims to create economic sustainability, protect AIDS orphans and other children from human trafficking and other exploitation, and promote gender equality. The project was also local, the academy having been founded by the Good Shepherd Sustainable Learning Foundation of Milford, PA. Langberg, who comes from musical roots, decided to help create a band for the academy. He sought out used instruments, found 33, had them repaired with the help of the Milford Music Store “at a ridiculous discount,” (even had the heads of a bass drum stenciled with academy name), organized a benefit concert raising $800 for accessories to keep the instruments working, found lesson books and sheet music, boxed it all up and drove it to Maryland for shipment to Africa. And oh, he raised another $1,500 to pay a teacher.
