About Voice for Change Partnership Programme 
In partnership with the International Food Policy Research Institute, the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, SNV is launching in 2016 a five year programme entitled Voice for Change Partnership.

The programme's main goal is to support progress in globally challenging topics related to the Sustainable Development Goals, with a specific focus on inclusion and equity issues.
