Before joining the international office, Sandra worked for six years as a major donor fundraiser for SOS Children’s Villages The Netherlands, and for 15 years prior to that in private banking. Sandra grew up in Amsterdam and is a Dutch national with Indonesian roots. She speaks Dutch and English, and understands German, French and Indonesian. She lives in the Netherlands with her husband and daughter.

“It is a privilege to work for SOS Children's Villages. In my job, I meet inspiring supporters of our work who share their personal motivations, life stories and engagement with our vision.

I feel very proud and humble when SOS mothers and SOS social workers share stories of their daily challenges and successes in making a difference in the life of a child. I love my job because I can share these stories with those who want to contribute to creating opportunities for children.

SOS Children’s Villages has the unique combination of being a very practical, hands-on organisation with a holistic, long-term vision. This is what makes it different from other child-oriented organisations, and why I am proud to advocate for its mission.”
