Introduction

El Soplo del Viento literally means the breath of the wind. The wind is not visible, still it's the force that puts everybody and everything in motion, sometimes with a little breeze, sometimes with a hurricane.

Following his example we want to move people in various ways, resulting in an open and honest relation based on mutual respect.

Our activities are mainly focused on:

We commit ourselves to awakening people to the specific problems of persons with physical, emotional or social limitations.

We personally support small scale projects in which music, creativity, nature and integration of persons with limitations are the focus of attention.

History

El Soplo del Viento originates from the meeting between Els, Nathalie and Tim, a few years ago.

El Soplo

Els was a young woman with physical limitations and other health problems who, at that point, had just enough energy to do the household and work a few hours a week as a music-therapist. The rest of her time she was in bed, too exhausted to do something else.

Nathalie and Tim engaged themselves to take over as much as possible the physical demanding tasks in the everyday life of Els in exchange for music lessons, so they would gain the resources needed to organise music evenings and drum workshops in the future.

This mutual support seeded the foundation of El Soplo del Viento. A non commercial organisation which enables Els, Tim and Nathalie to develop and share their talents with others. So that more people become inspired to discover their own potential to nurture their talents, and to use them to initiate different projects.
