  21. 31. About CFCA initiatives: Walk2gether: At 73 years old, CFCA President and Co-founder Bob Hentzen is walking 8,000 miles through 12 countries in Central and South America. The walk began Dec. 29, 2009, in San Lucas Toliman, Guatemala, and is expected to end in April, 2011, in Valparaiso, Chile. During the trek, Bob will visit CFCA families in project communities along the route. Zamboanga: Poverty, War, Music is a feature-length, CFCA-produced documentary film telling the story of 13 CFCA-community teens who learn to play the music of their culture on traditional Filipino instruments and end up being the headlining act at a five-hour concert on the edge of the jungle in front of 10,000 people. The opening acts are some of the best folk musicians in the Philippines. The audience is made up of families and friends from the CFCA communities, most of whom have never seen a concert before.
