Your steady support in 2014 has changed the lives of thousands in Niger. With your help, we’re doubling the size of several school market gardens, initiating more women’s gardens, and investing in community wide initiatives such as small grants, crop supplementation and workshops to improve yields, raise knowledge and increase food security for all.
Your contribution is nothing less than an investment in desert families to shape their own futures in the face of myriad challenges.
Thank you so much for your friendship and partnership throughout the year.Enjoy this video reviewing all the ways we made Niger a better place in 2014.
Happy New Year from all of us at RAIN!
Niger’s nomads are skilled craftspeople; the artistry trade is a whole identity to certain castes of people and has long supported them. Traditional skills have eroded over time, and fewer young women learn the skills their mothers and grandmothers knew. Keeping traditional culture alive is part and parcel of what we do. Members of our artisan co-operatives act as cultural ambassadors to the next generation. As they earn more, learn new designs and expand their markets, interest grows in the community.
Your contribution to help support these artisans is nothing less than an investment in the possibility for marginalized desert families to shape their own futures in the poorest country in the world.

Thank you for all you do and Happy New Year from all of us at RAIN!
Nomadic students of the Niger desert have little opportunity to progress past primary school - especially girls. With your support, RAIN has been turning it around. The Agadez Learning Center provides a “home away from home” where rural Tuareg and Wodaabe students can live, learn new skills and receive the support to succeed. It’s only because of your support that this year will see the expansion of the learning center to accommodate more students, high school scholarships, a mentoring program and more in 2015.
Enjoy this video capturing the students expressing their thanks to the GlobalGiving community and having tons of fun in the process!
THANK YOU FOR ALL YOU'VE DONE FOR NOMADIC STUDENTS FROM ALL OF US AT RAIN.
