You know, it was a unique opportunity to work on a project like this. I remember when Thierry from UNICEF contacted us. I didn't understand the full dimension of the project at that time. When Tomas contacted Jim to find out more, he told Tomas to check the project website for information. I looked it up and when I saw it, I said whoa this is a huge project. At that moment, I forgot about everything and wanted to be involved in the project. I have been working in so many projects like this, but this one is different because it is involving special kids, orphans. Also it was important to me because I had the opportunity to work with people from a different culture, with different knowledge and different skills. So I've learned a lot. I would be happy to see the kids getting involved in photography much deeper like I saw here. What was amazing was they cope so very well with the digital format.

What I can say to my family, and my community, is that the most important thing is love, not money. Sometimes they say that they donít visit us because they have nothing to give us. We need love, not things. Even with money you can still feel alone inside.
