As developing countries grow, they continue to face significant challenges in providing access to quality education, health care, and jobs, particularly for poor and vulnerable populations. At SSG, we are committed to empowering youth, women, and vulnerable populations to access these opportunities by building sustainable, impactful partnerships in education, workforce development, and health. SSG Advisors believes that partnerships between public, private, and civil society stakeholders can achieve extraordinary impacts resulting in improved health, well-being, and employment skills. Using our comprehensive Sustainable, Transparent, Effective, Partnerships (STEP) methodology, we have built over 200 partnerships in more than 50 countries. This methodology focuses on practical, hands-on approaches enabling actors to jointly identify concrete ways to improve outcomes through collaboration in the sectors of education, youth development, women’s empowerment, health, and workforce development. Through our work in education, skill development and basic foundational programs, we ensure that people have the building blocks they need for social and economic inclusion.
