At SNV, we believe that no one should live in poverty. Driven by the Sustainable Development Goals, we dedicate our work to a society in which all people are free to pursue their own sustainable development, and no one is left behind. This commitment to equity directs us to focus on gender and youth.
Our work focuses on increasing people’s incomes and access to basic services in agriculture, energy, water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH). Our projects directly benefit millions of people (5 M in 2020) and drive systems change by strengthening institutions and kickstarting markets. By connecting our global expertise with a longstanding in-country presence, we help realise locally-owned solutions. And we do so in around 24 countries in Asia, Africa, and Latin America.
