Use Food Security to Break Niger Out of Poverty

Niger, a landlocked country in West Africa, is one of the poorest countries in the world. Sixty-one percent of its residents live on less than $1 a day. On top of these already dire circumstances, floods have wreaked havoc on livestock herds, catapulting even more of Niger's population into poverty.

International Relief & Development (IRD) is in Niger helping to strengthen the livelihoods of these vulnerable people. Their ultimate goal is food security - for the residents of Niger to have healthy access to food and to not have to live in fear of hunger or starvation.

IRD, through funding from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, has reconstituted herds for families who lost animals in the floods, established ponds and water wells for animals and promoted pasture reserves for these areas.

Please stand with IRD by pledging your support for the work they're doing in Niger. After you sign, don't forget to sign up for IRD's email list to learn more about the situation in Niger.
