Fondation Hirondelle
General Director
Lausanne, Switzerland
Fondation Hirondelle is a Swiss non-profit organization founded in 1995, which provides information to populations faced with crisis, empowering them in their daily lives and as citizens. We currently work in the Sahel region, CAR, DRC and Myanmar. We manage or support independent media in their mission of informing people and support local journalists to enable them to work in a professional and ethical environment.
My career reflects a commitment to international development, particularly in Africa. I joined Fondation Hirondelle in December 2003. I was in charge of the Radio Okapi project (the United Nations radio in the DRC created in partnership with Fondation Hirondelle), and then became Head of Operations in 2008. Before Fondation Hirondelle, I worked for the International Foundation for Electoral Systems (IFES) where I participated in numerous assessment and election observation missions in the DRC, Rwanda, Burundi, South Africa, Nigeria and Congo-Brazzaville. I hold a BA from the Institute of Political Studies in Lyon, completed by a degree in International Relations from the Georgetown University in Washington, DC.
