Agency for Technical Cooperation and Development Niger
ACTED has been present in Niger since 2010 and is mobilized alongside the most vulnerable populations affected by the crises, in order to provide a response to their basic needs while reinforcing their resilience capacities.
In the regions of Tillabéry and Diffa, ACTED provides access to water and sanitation to IDPs and host communities and distributes shelter kits and non-food items. Sensitization sessions on good hygiene practices help prevent the outbreak of epidemics. Infrastructure maintenance is also organized to ensure the sustainability of the infrastructure.
In parallel, ACTED aims at reinforcing the economic resilience of the most vulnerable by training and supporting the beneficiaries of its projects in the launch of income-generating activities. ACTED promotes agricultural revival by introducing farmers to new techniques and providing them with agricultural inputs.
