In 2013 SNV Uganda contributed to improved income, food security, employment and use of basic services for 1.1 million people.

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
