On Monday 29 July, former princess Tessy De Nassau was awarded the Cross of Merit by Pestalozzi International in Switzerland as a recognition of her active engagement in humanitarian work.

Only 2 months ago, the Paris College of Art awarded Tessy an honorary doctorate for her charitable activities around the world.

As the co-founder of the non-profit "Professors without Borders", she is actively engaged in global education and women's empowerment.

The Swiss-based Pestalozzi International Foundation focuses on furthering education for children in under-privileged countries such as Nepal and Zimbabwe, as does Tessy.

Apart from her non-profit engagement and leading her business "Finding Butterflies Consultancy Ltd", Tessy launched a wide range of projects such as the podcast "Meeting New Friends Through Tessy's Lens".
