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


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.

Laura Spencer


Laura recently joined Kiya Survivors to take on the role as Treasurer. She is a Chartered Accountant and has over 10 years corporate experience in Finance Consulting having worked for professional services firms including Ernst & Young and Accenture. She is currently living in Valencia, Spain where she has discovered and developed a passion for Latin food and music!

Kiya’s mission and personalized, local approach to helping children in need in Peru really resonated with her, especially as she is about to become a mum herself. She aims to bring her Accounting and Finance experience to the board to put Kiya in a strong position to keep delivering and building on the amazing impact in the local communities that they currently achieve.
