SNV has been present in Ghana since 1992. SNV Ghana contributes to poverty reduction as articulated in the Ghana Growth and Poverty Reduction Strategy, the national development blueprint, which is in line with the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).

SNV Ghana works in collaboration with other partners to reduce poverty through capacity building with local actors. Our wide range of services includes advisory services, knowledge networking, evidence-based advocacy and value chain development. We believe in inclusive growth and development as an essential feature for lasting development success.

As part of its strategy from 2012 onwards, SNV Ghana will focus its activities in three main sectors; Renewable Energy, Water, Sanitation & Hygiene (WASH) and Agriculture (Fruits, Vegetables and Oil Seeds). Cross-cutting programmes include Gender, Governance for Empowerment and Enabling environment.

With the SNV Ghana head office located in Accra, its activities are coordinated by Country Director, Amanda J. Childress, MPA.
