Olivia Collins



I work as an independent consultant conducting research, evaluations and training sessions for the humanitarian sector. 

My objective is to keep learning and sharing ideas with fellow aid workers, so that together we can improve what we do - responding to humanitarian needs according to the principles of impartiality, neutrality and independence.

Field experience includes nearly 10 years’ work in Sri Lanka, Afghanistan, Lebanon, Sudan (Darfur), South Sudan, Chad, Zimbabwe and the Democratic Republic of Congo.

A British citizen, I am currently based in Kenya and France. I am available to work for NGOs or UN agencies worldwide.
