Somaye wants a world in which everyone has the equal opportunity to thrive – to realize this, she has devoted her life and career for the next decade to significantly and systematically contribute to achieving Sustainable Development Goals. She does that by connecting unlikely allies to upscale their impact.
As one of the forces and pillars for achieving the 2030 Agenda, Somaye believes in the collective power of Civil Society Organizations and through Your Funding Network provides the means for their organizational sustainability. That is an absolute requirement for them for having the ability to upscale their impact.
Somaye serves as a member of the advisory board of several organizations such as RUG/Campus Fryslan, Nederland Filantropieland (merged with Goede Doelen Nederland), Spark Women and Netwerk VN-Vrouwenverdrag. She lives with her partner Remko and their two sons, Jeso and Robert, in the east of Utrecht, the Netherlands.
