Project #62 | Economic empowerment and food security in Niger
Our partnership with RAIN
Our partnership with RAIN provided two schools with a market garden, mentoring program, and set up a cooperative for women artisans. Each of these components come back to investing in the two communities and schools to help build sustainable change.
We came alongside RAIN through a $25,667 matching grant that will address hunger and its impact on education while also increasing economic opportunities in Niger. This will be done by investing in two local schools by setting up school market gardens that provide meals for over 280 children and helps fund the schools’ operations. This project will also start an artisan cooperative for 30 women to help spearhead small economic opportunities for them, their families, and the schools.
PEOPLE GAINED ACCESS TO CAPITAL
Thank you for making this possible!
Our movement is grassroots, to us that not only means the work on the ground is led by local leaders with the support of the community, but it also means that we raise the funds for our projects through everyday donors just like you. In addition to all the donors that gave $25, $100, or $250 and the campaigners that ran a race or donated their birthday to raise funds, we also want to thank our generous business, school, and faith sponsors who believed in our work and joined the movement.
If you want to support future projects like this you can make a donation to our jobs and skills fund.
