Sustainable Agriculture Program

Project summary

Rain for the Sahel and Sahara forges partnerships with rural and nomadic peoples in Niger to enable enduring and relevant livelihoods. Through collaboration, we build environmentally and economically sustainable food and water systems to alleviate hunger. The Foundation’s support provides the infrastructure for reliable water and food, such as wells and irrigated gardens. Training in sustainable agriculture enables nearly year-round harvests while training in business practices maximizes profits. Finally, a network of rural and urban women creates access to regional markets and generates more stable incomes.
