UNICEF works in 190 countries and territories to protect the rights of every child. UNICEF has spent 70 years working to improve the lives of children and their families. Defending children's rights throughout their lives requires a global presence, aiming to produce results and understand their effects. UNICEF believes all children have a right to survive, thrive and fulfill their potential – to the benefit of a better world. And we never give up.

For every child, hope

Niger is a landlocked Sahelian country of 20.7 million people, most of whom live in rural areas (84%). The population is young, with 52% of Nigeriens being under 15, and nearly half of the population is poor (45.1%), despite reductions in the poverty rate over the past decade. The country, which ranked second to last on the 2016 Human Development Index, sees its development constrained by several factors: climatic conditions that hinder rural development, vulnerability due to the absence of economic diversification, high population growth, gender equality issues, low levels of literacy and education, and the size and landlocked nature of the country, which obstruct the provision of essential goods and services to the population.

In 2017, Niger continued to face a multifaceted humanitarian crisis that included not only conflict and displacement but also food insecurity and malnutrition, floods, and epidemic outbreaks.
