SNV has been present in Uganda since 1989 and undertakes donor funded programming in over 30 districts in Uganda

SNV is a not-for-profit international development organisation, working in Agriculture, Energy and Water, Sanitation & Hygiene (WASH). Founded in the Netherlands in 1965, SNV has built a long term local presence in more than 25 developing countries in Africa, Asia, and Latin America.  SNV has been present in Uganda since 1989 and has a country office in Kampala with regional offices in Arua, Fort Portal, Kasese, Lira and Mbarara and undertakes donor funded programming in over 30 districts in Uganda.

SNV is dedicated to a society in which all people are free to pursue their own sustainable development. We create systems change by strengthening institutions and kick-starting markets that help many more people to escape poverty beyond our projects. We apply practical knowhow to create results. We use our extensive and long term in-country presence to apply and adapt our top notch expertise in agriculture, energy and WASH to local contexts.

SNV works with governments, local development partners, businesses, knowledge institutes and communities, so that together we can transform ideas into policy, policy into action, and action into results.
