Chris Romero and her mother Jesy grew up in Tegucigalpa with a long history of missionary outreach to children at risk in Honduras. Their family moved to a community only 4 km away from the Tegucigalpa dump in hopes of being able to serve the families of the dump more effectively.
Jesy Romero has been involved with AFE from the beginning. Before AFE, she worked as an administrator in the department of natural resources for the government. She now serves as AFE's principal, managing curriculum, finances, and operations of the school.
Chris grew up with a passion for the children and families in the Tegucigalpa city dump since her exposure to their difficult situation when she was only 5 years old. Now as an adult she is the Coordinator for Teams and Donors at AFE and is also working hard in the university.
