Company Description

SNV is a not-for-profit international development organisation. Founded in the Netherlands 50 years ago, we have built a long-term, local presence in 39 of the poorest countries in Asia, Africa, and Latin America. Our global team of local and international advisors works 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.

Our work includes advisory services and brokering of knowledge, and we support policy dialogue to local organisations. With our activities we aim to upscale and have high impact on development. To accomplish this, we work in partnership with the public sector, private sector, farmer groups, civil society organisations, and other development organisations. Realising inclusive and sustained development at scale requires systemic change in sector performance and promoting equality. SNV supports local ownership by strengthening the capacities of local stakeholders in development processes for and on behalf of the community.
