Women on Wings staff in Máxima Special magazine

Dutch Plus Magazine created a special edition totally dedicated to Queen Máxima of the Netherlands. The magazine (242,225 copies) features stories about the Queen’s younger years, how she won the hearts not only of the King, but also of the Dutch in general, how she combines motherhood, royal duties and her work as UN Secretary-General’s Special Advocate for Inclusive Finance for Development. Next to these, Dutch people were invited to share their stories about meeting the Queen. Women on Wings’ team members and spouses Ronald van het Hof and Ineke Bezembinder sent in their story about their work for Women on Wings, having had Máxima as guest at Women on Wings’ 5th anniversary and meeting her during the Royal Visit in Mumbai October 2019 (see picture). Their story was chosen to feature in the special edition about Queen Máxima (in Dutch only).

“Through this partnership with Women on Wings, we want to enable more women to earn their own income that will give them greater financial means to improve their livelihoods. Economic independence for women means more children can go to school, more meals per day for their families and communities, and an overall better standard of living for them and future generations”
