Consultancy for Organisational Development Support and Coaching

DROPS Community Progress was founded in 2005 as a politically and religiously independent
non-profit organization with the aim to support youth at risk in Lebanon, including
Palestinians, Lebanese and Syrians alike, to take responsibility for their personal and
professional development and to promote positive changes in their lives and for their
communities. DROPS designed its own Junior Professional Program in 2010 and
implemented it since 2011 in the two Palestinian Camps Beddawi and Nahr al Bared, and in
Tripoli City in North Lebanon. DROPS also collaborated with the Swiss Foundation
Swisscontact to pilot a new initiative: the Coaching for Employment and Entrepreneurship
project in Tripoli.
Due to DROPS’ history, having been founded by a Palestinian from Tripoli, North Lebanon,
and a Swiss citizen, the organization was set up as two sub-organizations, one in Lebanon and
one in Switzerland, closely cooperating on a strategic and operational level. In 2019, DROPS
initiated a restructuring process with the aim to meet the changing needs of both parties involved and to ensure a sustainable set up of DROPS Community Progress as a whole, mainly
the strengthening and future independence of DROPS Lebanon.
While the administrative office in Switzerland has been closed in early 2020, and the handover
of all operational and other core tasks of the volunteer Swiss Board to Lebanon have taken
place, there are still needs of the DROPS Lebanon team – both the staff and the new local
Board – to build respective capacities and to set-up the organization in an economically
sustainable way.

The capacity building and organizational development process of DROPS Lebanon is
supported by the Drosos Foundation that aims for this purpose to hire an experienced and
Lebanon-based external consultant. The consultant is expected to plan and implement the 12-
months process and act as a coach/mentor mainly for DROPS Lebanon’s senior management
and admin and finance staff.
The process shall provide DROPS with the opportunity to thoroughly reflect on its strength
and weaknesses and the options and measures to be taken to become a sustainable
