Our programmes cover child protection, health, hunger, education and sanitation.
We've been working in Niger since it was hit by a major food crisis in 2005. As well as emergency interventions, we run long-term programmes to support children's health, nutrition, and education, and ensure they're protected.
Our livelihoods programmes help families become more resilient in the face of seasonal stresses and economic shocks. We distribute livestock, seeds and fertilisers, and use cash transfers to boost local economies and avert food crises. Through our Household Economy Approach, we're learning more about what foods families buy and where shortages are likely, and working with the government and NGOs to improve early warning systems.
Our teams support the health service to ensure that babies are delivered safely, and that children receive life-saving immunisations to protect them from killer diseases. We're also working with communities to improve health, hygiene and sanitation. In education, we're helping ensure that children - especially girls - stay in school.
