Strategic Support Unit is an integral part of the organization. Its primary function is to support the organization by guiding and managing response to a physical, environmental and/or cultural change and the needs of SPO’s direct and indirect community partners by designing unique interventions to transform the lives of people.
The Unit designs project interventions and seamlessly hands them over to the program implementation unit with partnership being signed off. The unit helps SPO to gather, analyse and organise information for the purpose of strengthening organisation and supporting its overall growth. It ensures that SPOs Vision, Mission and its strategic organisational goals are reflected and accounted for in each of its project commitment.
