Collaborating with prime partner International Relief and Development (IRD), SSG used its proprietary Sustainable Transparent Effective Partnerships (STEP) methodology to foster public-private cooperation and enable conflict victims to resume a normal life by:
- Developing Strategic Partnerships designed to leverage private sector resources in support of education, medical, and other needs of conflict victims seeking to reintegrate into the Pakistani economy and society.
- Building the capacity of CVSP staff and implementing partners to launch key partnership opportunities reflecting the needs and priorities of the project’s target institutions and stakeholders, ranging from medical support to income generation.
- SSG Advisors supported more than 10 strategic partnerships in a broad range of industries, including pharmaceuticals, telemedicine, skills training, microfinance, medical, media, agribusiness, and finance.
- CVSP partnerships are functioning to reduce key Sources of Instability (SOI) by engaging and supporting at-risk populations in the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA/KP), building trust between citizens and their government, and encouraging local populations to take an active role in their development.
