When Ebola ravaged West Africa in 2015, World Vision Niger’s efforts turned to training and educating faith leaders. Using workshops called Channels of Hope, we reached religious leaders from all regions of Niger, training them to better convey the message of disease prevention among their faith communities.
Malnutrition is a constant challenge for children in Niger. Over a one-year period, more than 37,000 children suffering from acute malnutrition were admitted to rehabilitation centres supported by World Vision and nearly all recovered to a healthy weight for their age. We continue to improve households’ economic conditions and food security through savings groups and community food-grains banks.
