punto.sud was formed in Milan, Italy, in 1999 by a group of professional consultants with broad experience in project preparation, management and evaluation as well as in training of humanitarian aid workers.
Our main goal is to support and optimise the activities of organisations working in the field of humanitarian aid and international development cooperation. We do this by taking charge of the outsourcing of part of the organisational process, and by starting new partnerships through the implementation of projects.
punto.sud acts as a bridge between donor and international agencies, non-governmental organisations, non-profit organisations, research centres and university departments, the public administration, and corporations. Within this framework our activity moves on two interdependent tracks: institutional activity and delivering of specific services. In the first case, we include activities finalised to guarantee establishment and enhancement of partnership and networks, implementation of projects, management of framework contracts and development of researches and guidelines. In the second case, punto.sud responds directly to specific demands carried out by our clients (mainly international donor agencies and non-governmental organisations) in monitoring and evaluation, capacity building and training, technical assistance and helpdesk support.
