OUR STORIES

“I find it important that they ensure the Netherlands is a great country for everyone to live in.” Adit (10) and Sofie (12) had the opportunity to stand in the front row as Child Correspondents during the presentation of the new cabinet. Naturally, they also asked a few questions to some ministers. They were the only children and the first children ever to be present at a cabinet presentation. Incredibly proud that I can and am allowed to organize this. Together with our Youth News Foundation. It is so important to stand at the forefront with the youth, to ask questions, and to express opinions. Especially now. An unforgettable experience for these two heroes, and the ministers, state secretaries, the King, and everyone else saw that we are here and heard from us. On to more wonderful things. Thanks to the help, trust, and kindness of the Government Information Service, security guards, fellow journalists, communication advisors, and everyone else. [...]

We were able to organize a special day for Ukrainian children who have fled to the Netherlands. The children shared their stories, asked questions, and, most importantly, had fun. It’s wonderful to see once again how crucial it is for children that adults truly listen to them. ‘The war causes many broken souls.’ The self-confidence of these children has certainly received a tremendous boost. Thanks to vfonds – National Fund for Peace, Freedom, and Veteran Care, Madurodam, Evgeniy Levchenko, the Municipality of The Hague, Sonja, Bea, Marjo, and all others who made this day a success. Special thanks to Liliana Happel for her fantastic interpreting, translating, and improvising. [...]
