Focus on Niger

Domestic insecurity, regional political instability, and climate-induced disasters have hampered the growth of Niger’s economy. More than 10 million people were living in extreme poverty in 2021. And to add, the country is struggling with an influx of refugees fleeing conflicts from neighboring countries including Mali and Nigeria.

Islamic Relief’s Dedication to Niger

Islamic Relief has been in Niger since 2005. Since then, our focus has been on long-term development assistance to help pull vulnerable communities out of the cycle of poverty.

A few of our interventions include:

  • Food aid
  • Access to water, healthcare, and education 
  • Qurbani+ (Plus), an initiative that seeks to increase the income of families by partnering with them in an Islamic microfinance livelihood program connected to Eid al-Adha
  • Orphan care
  • Humanitarian aid for vulnerable communities including internally displaced people 
  • Emergency aid for flood-affected families including food aid, non-food items, and cash assistance
  • Women empowerment

We Need YOUR Help

Thanks to you, we’ve been able to accomplish so much. But there’s still so much more to do. By continuing to support our efforts in Niger, you can help make a difference in the lives of those in desperate need.
