In my role as program officer at Swisscontact I had the chance to work with Hassan Bugnard as my counterpart in Lebanon. He managed our Tafawoq project aiming to achieve labor market insertion and SME promotion. I was impressed by his capacity to give this project a clear orientation and achieve exceptional results (such as over 60% labor market insertion rate of coaching cycle participants) in an economic and politically very challenging context.
