Approach

SSDO will adopt following key approaches to engage with all stakeholders to achieve mission and vision of the organization:

  1. Issues Based Action Research. The most import niche that SSDO highly depends on is the research and authentic profiling. SSDO considers research as essential for working on religious minority issues as a crosscutting work strategy. As a regular operational mechanism, SSDO will be considering conducting all relevant research exercises and specialized research around thematic areas. All research conducted under every program will be published in various forms like detailed reports, policy briefs, awareness raising brochures, blogs and video documentaries, digital story telling.

  2. Rights Based Advocacy. SSDO adopts rights-based advocacy in both at policy level and at community level to achieve objectives. SSDO will continue lobbying with government institutions, policy makers, duty bearers, legislators, political parties, think tanks, watchdogs at national and international levels to sensitize them about human rights, citizens’ rights, rights of marginalized sections like women, children, religious minorities, transgender community and issue of governance and rule of law to get their support to meet objectives and to influence the local policies. The research base of the organization will help influence above-mentioned stakeholders. SSDO will also be going through rigorous community advocacy campaigns to sensitize relevant communities towards their real social and political problems and the methods of resolving those issues. SSDO will introduce programs on civic education, especially state and governance structure, political processed, electoral processes, rule of law and inclusive governance, and fundamental and citizens’ rights, transparency, and access to information, etc. This will help develop a leadership and informed citizenry that can further influence the power holders to pay heed to issues faced by citizens in Pakistan.

  3. Collaboration and Building Partnership with National and International Actors. SSDO will be building partnership with funding agencies, international and national organizations, media, and civil society already working in similar thematic areas. At the same time, SSDO will also join hands with networks, civil society organizations, alliances and coalitions that are working for social change through improving governance system or human rights situation.

  4. Localising the Global Efforts and Oversight of the Progress. SSDO understands that issues of governance, rule of law and human rights are culturally specific but mostly requires global efforts to resolve the issues. However, SSDO believes that localizing the global efforts brings more culturally appropriate, efficacious, impactful, and sustainable results. The foundation of the SSDO is already rooted on thematic focus and the organization will continue its all programming on collaborating with state institutions to achieve Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for Pakistan.

  5. Empowering Communities and Citizens. SSDO will expand its outreach to all relevant stakeholders through capacity building and awareness raising workshops, trainings, seminars, sessions, conferences, and civic and social media campaigns. SSDO already has built up a pool of resource material, trainers, and experts around thematic areas.
