Improved honey production

The number of active beekeepers has risen in SNV supported provinces, with production also increasing to meet demand for local honey.

Water and sanitation for all

Through new constructions and rehabilitations in Zambia, communities and school children can now access safe water and improved sanitation in the districts supported by SNV.  This work was realised through our engagement with local organisations.

Linking producers to processors

SNV facilitated linkages between rice farmers and processors/buyers in Zambia. Rice farmers are assured of markets for their produce.
