SNV Netherlands Development Organisation (SNV)

SNV is a not-for-profit international development organisation. Founded in the Netherlands in 1965, they have built a long-term, local presence in many of the poorest countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America. The global team of local and international advisors work with local partners to equip communities, businesses and organisations with the tools, knowledge and connections they need to increase their incomes and gain access to basic services – empowering them to break the cycle of poverty and guide their own development.  SNV is dedicated to a society in which all people, irrespective of race, class or gender, enjoy the freedom to pursue their own sustainable development. They help to alleviate poverty by focusing on increasing people's income and employment opportunities in specific productive sectors, as well as improving their access to basic services including water, sanitation and hygiene, and renewable energy. SNV’s goal is to catalyse sustainable development processes. They support people to access and develop the capabilities, services and opportunities needed to live a healthy, productive and otherwise fulfilling life, while sustainably using the natural resources they depend on. Unlike many other development actors, SNV does not offer funding, but specialises in supporting the resourcefulness of development actors. Together they develop local capacities, strengthen governance systems, and make markets work for the poor. SNV is result driven and will measurably improve the quality of life of approximately 15 million of the world’s poorest people in the period 2013-2015. By sharing their specialist expertise in Agriculture, Energy and Water, Sanitation & Hygiene, their team of over 1,000 professionals from different nationalities works to solve some of the most urgent development challenges facing the world today. By focusing on three key roles, in combination with their local presence, they guarantee maximum effectiveness, scale and sustainability of their work. SNV's advisory services focus on creating effective solutions with local impact. They form the core of their work and provide them with an in-depth knowledge of the local context and the agendas of local actors, rooted in a long-standing presence in over 30 countries. Their services are geared towards the development of organisational and leadership capacities, catalysing market-based solutions and supporting enabling environments.
