Our Strategy

Since 2011, we have been working with local partners to provide emergency aid relief for refugees, increase access to education and healthcare in Niger through the provision of food, safe drinking water sources and delivering of Effective Sanitation and Hygiene Education with greater emphases on women and children.

The Context

Since the 1980s, Niger has been ranked at the bottom of the Human Development Index. With high political instability, natural crisis and influxes of refugees from neighboring countries, including Mali and Nigeria, basic resources such as food and water are increasingly scarce in Niger. A new period of drought threatens to leave 2.5 million people without enough food, according to the United Nations.

Malnutrition remains a critical issue and many children do not have access to education. As violence continues to spread across the region, many people live in fear and uncertainty and they are often forced to keep moving in search of safety and resources. In many areas, displaced people struggle to survive without any help.

Our Work

  • Rapid-response emergency relief for Nigerian refugees and Nigeriens affected by crisis.
  • Providing food, water and sanitation and other non-food items to refugees in Niger.
  • Increasing access to quality education and healthcare.
  • Agriculture & Food: Training farmer groups in business skills to grow subsistence plots to small-scale commercial farming operations.
