Humanity & Inclusion in Niger
Since 2006, Humanity & Inclusion has been working in Niger to have a positive impact on the lives of people with disabilities and people living in vulnerable circumstances, by reducing risks and preventing disabilities, improving access to services, and promoting a more inclusive society.
People with disabilities wide-spread discrimination and socioeconomic inequality and have minimal access to education, jobs, and health services. They are also excluded from communities, and their specific needs are rarely taken into account in development actions.
Humanity & Inclusion runs a range of projects in Niger to further the inclusion of children and adults with disabilities in education and employment. The organization also supports refugees and asylum seekers and works to reduce armed violence in the Sahel.

The scope of our work expanded significantly in 2012 with interventions in new areas including food security, reduction of armed violence and prevention and disability prevention in malnourished or developmentally delayed children under 5 years of age.

Through its education projects, Humanity & Inclusion's 103-staff team helps children with disabilities to access and remain in primary education. The organization has partnered with the Niger Federation for People with Disabilities to implement a project on the social and legal inclusion of women and children with disabilities in Niger.
In 2021, Humanity & Inclusion launched two projects to help protect people living in conflict-affected areas.
