The Niños Photo Book will be an ode to the beautiful children of the Andes.

Jolanda van den Berg has been awarded with a Royal distinction!

Yesterday we had a double celebration in Cusco.. Our birthday girl Jolanda has been awarded with a Royal distinction! Jolanda received this award by the Dutch consul in Cusco. The news was a big surprise for Jolanda: "... I must tell you that it is indeed a very special feeling, which I cannot quite place yet. But I notice how important it is for the people here and also therefore it is special to me.." The Niños team is very proud and we thank and congratulate therefore everyone who has contributed to the Niños project! As Jolanda herself put into words: "An incredible big kiss to all and congratulations because this honour is of course not only for me, but also for all of you and everyone here."

Book written specially for the Ninos project.
