SAINT | SSD recognises that those we serve face situational challenges that are constantly evolving, therefore we adapt and customise our knowledge services to the needs on the ground. Our domestic and in-mission services are “practical solutions”-based, focusing on knowledge transfer and the enhancement of capacity through self-sustaining local ownership (seeding and enabling Change Agents).


Our Approach: ethical, culturally-aware and socially responsible. Do no harm – leave no other footprint than the assignments’ objective.
