School gardens boost production, Income (The Observer, March 2014)


SNV is a not-for-profit international development organisation founded in 1965. Today we have built a long-term, local presence in 38 countries across Asia, Africa and Latin America. We support people to access and develop the capabilities, services and opportunities required to live healthy, productive and fulfilling lives, while sustainably using the natural resources they depend on.
We help to alleviate poverty by increasing people's income and employment opportunities in specific productive sectors, as well as improving their access to basic services including water, sanitation and hygiene, and renewable energy.
In 2013 SNV Uganda contributed to improved income, food security, employment and use of basic services for 1.1 million people. 

Our mission
SNV is dedicated to a society in which all people enjoy the freedom to pursue their own sustainable development. We contribute to this by strengthening the capacity of local organisations.
We believe sustainable development is about building capacities and learning from each other, which goes beyond just helping people.  Read more about us
