In Niger, residents must contend with national and regional security threats, political instability, and chronic food insecurity. The government’s inability to meet the basic needs of its citizens has diminished public confidence and caused citizens to question democracy as a credible system of governance. Through our Participatory Responsive Governance Program – Principal Activity (PRG-PA), Counterpart is improving education, health and security in Niger through increased dialogue and improved cooperation between government and civil society leaders.

From 2011-2013, Counterpart’s Food Aid for Disabled Children reduced malnutrition and kept children in school by providing meals to impoverished children with disabilities.
