The peoples of the Agadez region, Niger’s vast northern desert expanse, are strong and independent. They live a spartan life, well adapted to their severe desert home. Herds of goats, sheep and camels are the nomadic peoples’ source of sustenance. These animals provide milk, meat, and income. But drought and lack of pasture lands leave people helpless as they watch their children and treasured herd animals suffer and, all too often, lose their grasp on life.
When people are suffering, they turn to RAIN for help. We are compelled to respond. RAIN recently delivered five tons of food to nomadic schools in the Air Massif. We need to do more. Nomadic children must live at school; food is a necessity. Parents are mobilized, too. RAIN’s women’s leather cooperative is giving $3,000 worth of food for children in Gougaram. RAIN’s animal feed centers keep herds alive, in turn ensuring food security for their owners.
