SNV is a non-profit international development organization established in the Netherlands in 1965. For more than 50 years, SNV has been at the forefront of development, helping to build local capacity and empower families and communities to break the cycle of poverty. We operate in 38 developing nations in Africa, Asia and Latin America and employ innovative, market-led poverty alleviation in Agriculture & Food Security, Renewable Energy, and Water, Sanitation & Hygiene (WASH). Our more than 1,000 advisors in the field come from a variety of cultural and technical backgrounds, and more than 80 percent are nationals of the countries where we work.
