Meet the Children of the World

Meet the Children of the World

This year’s Children of the World choir is composed of boys and girls from Nepal, Uganda, and the Philippines. They can’t wait to meet you and to share with your how child sponsorship has transformed their lives. Read on to learn a little more about each of the children. Or click here to book the choir for your church or school.

Meet the choir leaders

Team leaders Andres and Jessica Sanchez grew up in Latin America — Andres in San José, Costa Rica, and Jessica in Bogotá, Colombia. Their paths first crossed, however, in New Jersey, where they were both living and working at the time. After they married, they decided that traveling with the Children of the World would be the perfect opportunity since they share a passion for kids and for making a global impact.

Andres

For the past 14 years, Andres has worked as a youth tennis instructor, a job that combines his two loves — sports and educating children. He has also recently taught kids rock climbing. His personal motto for life is “Inspire Imagination,” and he hopes to inspire the choir members, too.

 Jessica

Jessica studied literature and Romance languages at Harvard University, and she has been working on her graduate degree to become a school counselor. She says she is excited to see what God has in store for the choir in the coming year.
