Through our work and in collaboration with other organisations, SNV has provided services which have contributed to improved access to water and sanitation for two million people annually. We aim at doubling the number of beneficiaries to five million people annually. SNV realizes that this result can only be achieved through partnerships and unlocking local capacities to increase implementation rates and to ensure the gains made with water and sanitation services are being sustained.
SNV’s interventions are responsive to market needs. Our beneficiaries are poor people in rural, peri-urban areas and small towns, including school children. We address some of the most long-standing and basic issues in the sector, which directly affect the health, livelihood, and earning potential of the poor. SNV focuses on enhancing the capacities of local stakeholders – both providers and users – in sustainability and equity of water supply, access to basic sanitation, and understanding and sustaining of good hygiene practices.
