SAKOM operates with a totally client focused, client program priority in mind. Within each sector, our project managers are embedded with client staff, and will have the delivery and support to the client program firmly at the forefront of their operational plan. Within that operational plan, there will be a risk analysis taken on a daily basis; normally based on local feedback and source information, which will be the framework of the security approach for that day. Strategically, the aim is to ensure the client program is delivered on time and SAKOM consider themselves an enabler to the client mission.
SAKOM are happy to support the NGO community through either short term provision of security contractors, immediate response support for emergency or any other area of need. We recognise that some NGO’s are ‘for profit’ and others are not however our principles of providing security remain the same, i.e. we see ourselves as client enablers.
Africa has a high focus for the NGO community and Afghanistan too although in a more post emergency phase with a focus on capacity development and civil society development. SAKOM understand that donor constraints provide limitations on budgets for security and we are happy and capable of providing innovative security solutions to such clients.
