The Matsiko World Orphan Choir is a traveling choir of 23 orphaned and at-risk children from Nepal, Liberia, India, and Peru. They are representatives of the 600 million orphaned and at-risk children worldwide. The Matsiko Choir brings awareness and sponsorship to these children as they travel around the USA, performing with song and dance. International Children’s Network (ICN) is the organization of the Matsiko World Orphan Choir. ICN focuses its sponsorship specifically on the education of the child through the university and vocational level. As an extension of sponsorship, ICN is intimately involved in every community where its sponsorship resides. Not only does ICN cultivate relationships with families, leaders, pastors, and officials, but it also builds educational centers that provide infrastructure to support education for the children. At ICN Centers, children can receive after-school tutoring, a daily meal, extracurricular activities, medical care, mentorship, and refuge. We have found that these centers have a great impact on preventing child trafficking, increasing parental support of their child’s education, and influencing the child towards a better future that breaks their family’s cycle of poverty.
