Volunteer Niger

You know that there aren't going to be many volunteer work placements on offer in Niger when you hear that even the Peace Corps pulled out in 2011 having had a presence in the country since 1962. It was simply too unsafe for them to work following a succession of unstable governments since independence, rebellions in the north of the country and a general state of unlawfulness particularly in rural areas.

It will therefore come as little surprise that Niger is ranked in joint bottom 186th place with the Democratic Republic of Congo  of all countries and territories in the world in 2013 in terms of life expectancy, literacy, access to knowledge and the living standards of a

country with a life expectancy of 54.7 years. In the unlikely event you were ever to volunteer in Niger you would find a country where thousands live in slavery, diarrhoea and typhoid fever are rampant due to a virtually non existent water and sanitation system and ill health is rife. Most of Niger's population live in poverty and their homes are small, over crowded, mud brick huts.

Previous work projects in Niger have focused on agriculture, business development, education, environment, health and HIV/AIDS and well as youth projects, however pretty much the only volunteer organisation on the ground in Niger at present is the ever robust Red Cross. If you run or know of a volunteer work project in Niger let us know by contacting us here. We look forward to hearing from you!
