Fundraising on the occasion of 40th anniversary!
by Marjan Schaapman on 09 August, 2015

On September 1, 1975, Marcel van Wijk started - in his own words - "as a failed student” 'in the service of what then was called the DHV Consulting Engineers and today Royal HaskoningDHV. After an exciting career with an employer who has always provided for the necessary variety in work, he will celebrate on September 1, 2015 his 40th employment anniversary. We are very grateful and proud that Marcel has chosen this project for fundraising on the occasion of this 40th anniversary!


Marcel: “Spotlights are not for me - I'd rather put others in the spotlight. Therefore, I would like to take this festive opportunity together with my family, friends, colleagues and other interested parties to create a lasting memory of my jubilee; by something tangible and constructive for the less fortunate of this world.

For me sustainability is particularly evident in education; invest in education and training is the most effective tool in the fight against poverty. I also believe that increasing the "wisdom" of young people can clarify and broaden their worldview and that education in that sense, can contribute to a better world .... That conviction I have found in the Van Doorn Foundation and the project that I have chosen for this "anniversary campaign”: TA CRUSADE, establishing a vocational training centre in Uganda. I think this is a wonderful initiative of dedicated people who with some financial support can undertake this great project and I like to give them that support."


Marcel has therefore decided not to celebrate his 40th anniversary with DHV with a grand reception with drinks, snacks, speeches and gifts, but instead asking his entire network to support this project with a donation.


Are you also contributing to Marcel's anniversary project?

You can do so by transferring an amount to IBAN NL71 RABO 0157 8489 14 of the Van Doorn Foundation, stating “Jubilee Marcel”.


On the project page on the Van Doorn Foundation website and via LinkedIn and Facebook, we'll keep you informed of the progress of fundraising of the project.


Marcel: "I am convinced that we will achieve together a good result, which will make this 40-year anniversary more special for me. I greatly appreciate everyone's contribution!"
