Watching videos and seeing photos of the Kiya children smiling from ear to ear makes the effort that all the UK staff, trustees, sponsors and volunteers put in feel so thoroughly worthwhile.
Olivia Rossdale, Trustee
Olivia joined the Kiya Board in 2016 as Company Secretary. In 2020, she took on the role of Chairperson as she continues to support the remarkable work of the Kiya team. Olivia began her career in investment banking, specialising in mergers and acquisitions. She aims to provide useful strategic advice to Kiya as well as help to grow the sponsor programme.
Olivia spent several months in South America on two occasions, finding voluntary work on both. Having lived with local families and worked closely with orphaned or less privileged children on both occasions, she is passionate about Kiya’s mission, and looks to translate the skills she’s learnt in her corporate working life to help the Company continue to instigate change for the children and young people or Peru.
