Niger Projects
Niger Projects Niger is one of the poorest countries on earth, ranking among the lowest on the United Nations Development Program's Human Development Index. Drought cycles, instability, and desertification continue to have a negative impact on the economy. To help alleviate poverty and reduce malnutrition in villages such as Guidan Gado, Samaritan's Purse implements livestock and agriculture programs to help vulnerable families. Household water treatment systems and latrines have also been installed in a number of villages to reduce disease. Through all of these projects, we seek to share God’s Word in a country that is around 98 percent Muslim.
