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).
