Note on SNV affiliation with DevWorks (previously known as SNV USA)
SNV USA rebranded itself to DevWorks in February 2020. With this rebranding, the exclusive affiliation of SNV and SNV USA is coming to an end. We wish DevWorks and our many colleagues with whom we have worked in unison the best in their new endeavour.
Over the past decade SNV has invested in the establishment and growth of SNV USA , a District of Columbia USA not-for-profit corporation (501c3), as a closely affiliated organisation. Our aim was to access US government financing to jointly 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 Netherlands Development Organisation using an intertwined modus operandi governed by SNV policies and procedures.
We are proud that SNV USA/SNV has successfully built a considerable USAID financed portfolio based on the extensive on the ground implementation capacity and quality track record of SNV Netherlands Development Organisation on WASH, Agriculture and Energy in Africa, Asia and Latin America.
SNV will continue to pursue USAID and other USG financing directly, as a prime contractor or through sub-contracts with various US-based organisations.
We have been informed that SNV USA intends to continue with the 501c3 entity we helped establish under a new brand name: DevWorks International (DevWorks). Both parties agree that DevWorks/SNV USA is not a representative of SNV. DevWorks will not use any SNV branding outside our current joint projects. It will not be able to use project references from SNV Netherlands Development Organisation.
SNV intends to continue working on joint projects currently under implementation through the original SNV USA/SNV affiliated set-up.
