Niger

This past year (2019), GlHF re-granted to Rain for the Sahel and the Sahara. They work in rural Niger with nomadic women and girls. Here are the details of this grant.

School Market Gardens provide food for nomadic primary school students, enabling them to stay in school. The gardens serve as living classrooms for lessons in organic farming and basic accounting. Women’s Community Gardens empower nomadic women to boost their families’ food security with shared plots, lessons in agriculture and nutrition and income from cash crops. Hand in hand with food security is access to wells to irrigate crops and provide fresh drinking water – freeing women and children from the daily task of fetching water.
