SNV supported six honey processing companies in Ethiopia to access new markets in the EU, USA and Middle East markets. To meet demand, thousands of beekeepers had been incorporated in an out-grower scheme supported by SNV.
SNV is working with local organisations in Ethiopia in a pilot to enable school girls to access quality and affordability of reusable sanitary pads.
SNV in Ethiopia signed an agreement with the Oromia Regional Bureau of Water, Mineral Energy/ Regional Biogas Coordination Office and the Oromia Credit and Saving Share Company to finance households in Oromia regional state to access biogas technology under the Africa Biogas Partnership Programme.
SNV commenced its operations in Ethiopia in the 1970s responding to a call for assistance to address the famine situation in the country. In alignment with the poverty reduction programme, with its emphasis on agriculture led economic development and accelerated MDG achievement (water and energy), SNV focuses on Agriculture, Renewable Energy and Water, Sanitation and Hygiene sectors.
Within the above mentioned thematic expertises, we provide advisory services; promote the development and brokering of knowledge and support policy dialogue at national level. We work with local government, NGOs, civil society and private sector organizations. We believe these different actors have distinct and complementary roles in the fight against poverty. To increase the effectiveness of our programmes and our resources, we work in partnership with other development agencies, as well as private and public sector organizations.
