Rebecca Gerritse is head of Programmes at Humanitas, the Netherlands. She has worked for Humanitas since 2013, starting as a project manager for three national projects concerning poverty and debt issues. In early 2016 she started as Head of the department  responsible for all national projects and programmes within Humanitas. Humanitas has 84 local departments that run local activities.

Her focus is on developing and improving the quality and impact of Humanitas’ activities nationwide and support to local departments in the challenges they face. One of the latest efforts was the development of an impact measurement tool for all activities. This tool focusses directly on the people Humanitas supports and the impact on them. “However.. ‘the proof of the pudding is in the eating’. Next year we will be able to see the first results.”
