About Axel Schmidt

Social anthropologist and nurse with seven years of experience in managing humanitarian response in various contexts in Indonesia, South Sudan, Pakistan, Haiti, Tunisia, Liberia, Sudan and Iraq for a wide range of INGOs. My talent in working with people of different cultural and ethnical backgrounds and my passion for capacity building led me to become a Sphere trainer in spring 2012. Currently I facilitate and design training courses for the emergency response team of a German NGO.
