  • Lead design of program interventions that identify and develop new market opportunities that seek to upgrade the potential of the dairy value chain.
  • Develop value chain strategies for working with producers and enterprises to develop their capacity to identify and respond to business opportunities in the dairy value chain. These strategies should facilitate private sector engagement and investment among various levels of agriculture value chains including but not limited to producer, trader, processor, and wholesaler levels.
  • Ensure that program strategies facilitate strategic, commercially viable partnerships between value chain actors, especially with women and youth.
  • Manage a team of technical advisors that provide technical leadership in areas related to improved aggregation, post-harvest handling and storage; market linkages; business enabling environment; and other interventions that promote value chain competitiveness and food security.
  • Promote strong relationships with USAID, the Government of Kenya, other donor, multi-lateral, and non-governmental organizations, and the private sector.

SNV Netherlands Development Organisation is a non-profit, international development organisation, established in the Netherlands in 1965. SNV aims to alleviate poverty by enabling increased income and employment opportunities and increasing access to basic services. The organisation currently works in 38 countries in Africa, Asia, and Latin America

SNV was established as the Stichting Nederlandse Vrijwilligers (Foundation of Netherlands Volunteers) in 1965, under the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Originally focused on posting young Dutch volunteers to the South, SNV stopped working with volunteers in 1988 in response to the changing needs of host organisations and countries, instead assigning paid development workers to fulfil increasingly policy-related assignments. SNV has since evolved to become one of the largest Dutch development organisations and now focuses on providing capacity development services to local organisations. In 1993 the organisation changed its name to SNV Netherlands Development Organisation and in 2002 formally separated from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, although the organisation continues to receive a subsidy from the Ministry (ending 2015).
