Laurien Meuter

Laurien Meuter (1976) studied economics in Groningen and went on to work as a banker but, while working in Mumbai, discovered that her heart lay with the very poorest in society. And so she set up the foundation Tiny Miracles, where she works passionately to realize her dream. With her ‘holistic approach’, she tries to help communities to lift themselves out of poverty and to stay out of poverty.

The University of Groningen elected Laurien Meuter as Alumnus of the Year 2020. Meuter will receive her award on 6 September, during the opening of the academic year.
