SNV is a not-for-profit international development organisation that makes a lasting difference in the lives of people living in poverty by helping them raise incomes and access basic services. We focus on three sectors – agriculture, energy, and water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) – and have a long-term, local presence in 24 countries in Asia, Africa, and Latin America. We make a lasting difference in the lives of people living in poverty, helping them raise incomes and access basic services. Driven by the Sustainable Development Goals, we are dedicated to a society in which all people are free to pursue their own sustainable development, and no one is left behind. This commitment to equity directs us to focus on gender and youth. SNV bridges the gap between theory and practice, policy ambitions and effective implementation at scale. We implement approaches tailored to local needs as we believe that countries and communities themselves should be the owners of change. By connecting our global expertise with our extensive and longstanding in-country experiences, we help realise locally owned solutions.

Construction of 4No. Limited Mechanised Water Systems (LMS) in the Nandom and Lambussie Districts under Healthy Future for All Project
In 2020, Ghana's access to basic water supply stood at 86% overall (only 42% thereof safely managed). In rural areas, the picture is different; only 72% have access to basic water supply and thereof only 16% to safely managed services. As per the international SDG indicators, "safely managed drinking water" is defined as using an improved drinking water source located on-premises, available when needed, and free of contamination. In 2020, access to basic sanitation in Ghana was 24% (thereof, 13% safely managed). Unsurprisingly, in rural areas, the overall percentage is lower (17%) but with a higher rate of safely managed facilities (15%). The explanation lies in the criteria for "safely managed" which include off-site treatment and on-site treatment – the latter often practiced in rural areas where space is not as limited as in urban areas. A similar picture can be painted for progress in hygiene and access to water and sanitation services in health care facilities and schools.
Despite the progress Ghana has made on water supply, sanitation, and hygiene overall, the urban-rural disparity persists. The Upper West region of Ghana, a region with a few small towns and primarily rural characteristics, has the highest poverty rates (60-72%) and the highest depth of poverty. This stands in stark contrast to the Southern regions like Greater Accra and Ashanti, and Western regions where poverty rates are much lower. These regional differences are also reflected in the health and wellbeing of children.
Healthy Future for All (HF4A) is a Water, Sanitation, Hygiene and Nutrition intervention in Ghana's Nandom and Lambussie districts that will lead to substantial development in the targeted communities. Over three years, HF4A will improve the quality of life for all and specifically increase the number of children under 15 years growing up in a hygienic environment at home and in school. At SNV, we start our implementation with a baseline, Gender Equity and Social Inclusion (GESI) study and formative research to plan our interventions based on evidence. Social Behavioural Change (SBC) interventions for key target audiences aim at empowering beneficiaries to make informed decisions that lead to positive change and resilience. In parallel, and to harness private sector potential, concrete measures will strengthen supply chains and professionalize service provision. HF4A will look into increasing the availability of finance options for households to turn their decisions into actions. At the same time, carefully and jointly with the local government, selected infrastructure interventions will boost the functionality of water and sanitation facilities in health care facilities, schools, and communities. WASH governance is a central component to ensure sustainability and will be strengthened through improved long term and joint multi-stakeholder planning while including all social groups in the respective processes.
Under this 3-year project, SNV seeks a partner to strengthen the capacity of local WASH market stakeholders including service providers, hardware vendors, infrastructure management teams (WSMTs) and other supply/value chain actors. This partnership will see to enhanced delivery of WASH through skills, professionalisation and regulation of various actors.
