No Victims, No Heroes: We Are Each Other
By some definitions, Jolanda van den Berg might be dubbed a
philanthropist, a social entrepreneur, a life coach, or even a mystic.
But Jolanda's expansive life resists reductive titles. Over the past
quarter century her work has transformed the lives of thousands of
children in Peru, supported by her three highly-rated hotels. She has 80
locals on payroll, and offers 1:1 sessions with people going through
significant life challenges. Woven through the fabric of her life is an
ethos that deeply acknowledges the fact that there are no distinct
givers or receivers. As Jolanda phrases it, "No victims, no heroes. We
are each other." These aren't just pretty sentiments to herbut a lived
experience that she first stumbled into, utterly unexpectedly, five
years ago after an intensely traumatic incident.
