End of SNV affiliation with DevWorks (previously known as SNV USA)
The affiliation of SNV and SNV USA/DevWorks ended on the 1st of October 2020.
SNV Netherlands Development Organisation invested in the establishment and growth of SNV USA, a District of Columbia USA not-for-profit corporation (501c3) in order to access US government financing to increase our impact in fighting poverty. Our close affiliation with SNV USA was based on an agreement that SNV USA worked exclusively in partnership with SNV. The exclusive partnership came to an end when SNV USA rebranded itself to DevWorks in February 2020.
We are proud of the results we achieved through our jointly managed USAID financed portfolio. In our intertwined modus operandi, SNV country teams had full responsibility for technical performance and SNV USA focused on contract administration.
SNV is now pursuing USAID and other USG financing through sub-contracts with various US-based organisations and as a prime contractor.
We have been informed that DevWorks/SNV USA intends to continue with the 501c3 entity we helped establish under the new brand name DevWorks International. DevWorks/SNV USA is not a representative of SNV. DevWorks will not use any SNV branding. It will not be able to use project references from SNV Netherlands Development Organisation. We wish our former colleagues the best in their new endeavour.
