PLAN IN NIGER

Plan has been working in Niger since 1998, helping poor children to access their rights to health, education and protection.

Our programmes benefit at least 20,908 children in 77 communities.

Currently, we are focusing on a school canteen project that gives breakfast and lunch to school children in several Plan-affiliated communities. This not only encourages school attendance, it improves village food security and children’s nutrition.
