A flying start in life

Margreet helps organizations and their leaders to find their true essence and to transform meaningfully from there. She also accompanies family and organizational constellations. Margreet brings years of experience in the field of brand strategy, communication and retail, including from Albert Heijn, Picnic and Wehkamp.

"Everywhere in the world, including in the Netherlands, millions of children are at risk of becoming victims of exploitation. And it worries me that the numbers are only increasing. Every child has the right to a safe childhood in which they can play and be a child. Then they themselves offer a good start to their children and contribute to a better world for everyone."

“No one should exploit children. A heroic approach is necessary to get exploitation out of the world. That is what Terre des Hommes has been doing with heart and soul since its foundation. In ever-innovative ways that fit the spirit of the times, such as now with the strategy to be a catalyst for system change. And to make the voice of children really count. I am happy to contribute to giving many children a flying start in life."

With the appointment of Margreet van Steijn, our Supervisory Board now consists of five members, including Marianne Verhaar-Strijbos (chairman), Bas Verheijen, Jordi Bakker and Joost Schutte. The members receive no remuneration for their work and have no business relationships with Terre des Hommes.
