Bring Lights, Books and Computers to Niger

by Rain for the Sahel and Sahara
Vetted

Summary

Rain for the Sahel and Sahara seeks to bring our middle school students into the present day with a library and computer center. It's hard for us to imagine conditions in Niger - rural schools have no electricity and few books. Many classrooms are straw huts where children sit on the ground. Only 2% make it to secondary school. A library/computer center in Agadez will offer computer skills in a country with no computers in schools. Help us bring skills and the world to our future leaders.

Challenge

The literacy rate in Niger s one of the lowest in the world.

Solution

This new building will provide much needed technology and support for the nomadic children of Niger. It will provide access to more information and allows for additional structure for classes.

Long-Term Impact

With this project hundreds of students will benefit from modern technology and information. Students will be able to spread information like hygiene habits and sexual education to others of their community.
