Marie Jørgensen, M.Sc. Denmark

Antoinette Marie van de Vijver Jørgensen is involved at all levels of the organisation, with focus on grant applications for foundations in Denmark.

Marie´s primary interests are in programme development and implementation with a focus on women, children and adolescents in low and middle-income countries. Marie recently completed a Masters in Nutrition for Global Health at The London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, and has a Bachelors in Global Nutrition and Health, specialising in Public Health Nutrition and Food Policy, from The Metropolitan University College Copenhagen. From her studies she has gained up-to-date knowledge on practice and research within the Global Health and Nutrition profession. Among other things, the focus of her work and studies has been on the programme cycle with all the components this entails. Marie also has a strong understanding of and experience with both qualitative and quantitative research. Two internships during her Bachelors, one at a small NGO in Swaziland and one at The World Food Programme in Mozambique, have given her hands-on experience from the field as well as valuable insight into how organisations in the development sector work.

At The People’s Fund, Marie is primarily responsible for and contributes to defining and operationalising our fundraising strategy, identifying well-matched funding opportunities and developing funding applications including budgeting. Marie has also been involved in developing a project evaluation survey, assessing volunteer applicants and in the general strategic discussions in our organisation.
