Call for Expression of Interests of Local Capacity Building Services - SNV


SNV is a Netherlands based, international development organization, working in 36 developing countries across the world. SNV envisions a society where all people enjoy the freedom to pursue their own sustainable development.

We aim to considerably influence production, income and employment in Agriculture through systemic value chain development and substantially improve access to quality basic services in the sectors of Water, Sanitation & Hygiene (WASH) and Renewable Energy.

We work in five of the eight provinces in Kenya namely: Eastern, Central, Rift Valley, Nyanza and Western.

SNV clients in these regions are served through three portfolio offices located in Eldoret, Nanyuki and Nairobi.

In furtherance to the objective of strengthening local capacity builder (LCB) services, SNV Kenya sub-contract LCBs to participate in the delivery of capacity development services to SNV Clients.

We define LCB as, National, Districts and/or County level individual or organization (public or private organization; CSO, research or academic based) that provides a significant volume of capacity development services to district or national level organization.
