Niger

In 2010, Niger suffered a military coup and political crisis that destabilized the country. Though successful elections in 2011 boosted hopes of progress, Niger remains an extremely fragile state, plagued by both domestic and regional pressures. Niger was ranked the poorest country in the world according to the United Nations Human Development Index in 2013, and economic conditions have improved little since then. Since late 2011, we have worked to empower youth to participate in their community and strengthen positive social networks. Our team currently collaborates with local and international organizations in Niger and the greater Sahel to train youth in leadership and social communication.
