Recognizing that full citizenship can only be achieved through economic, political and social independence, SSDO also provides women with a set of financial services and tools to strengthen their skills and income and minimize their interest in anti-social activities.
South Saharan Social Development Organization calls for application from suitably qualified candidates for the position of Programme officer.
