Our Local Partners
In Niger, our implementing partners are working in a remote area with immense and urgent need for clean water—and where no other organization is working. Sanitation is also a significant challenge with 16.25 million people (almost 9 in 10 people) lacking access to adequate sanitation facilities.4
Serving the Unreached
The dominant religion is Islam with more 93% of the population identifying as Muslim while Christians represent 1% of the population.2 neverthirst began working in Niger in 2021 to help people gain access to safe water and improved health. Your support brings clean and living water to one of the most unreached countries in the world.
Give Clean and Living Water in Niger
Partner with us to serve unreached people groups throughout this nation.
Our vision is to see 140,000 people served with clean and living water by 2025. The extreme desert climate makes project installation and maintenance a major challenge, so these water programs in Niger are our most advanced solar-powered operations to date.
We are focused on improving health in Niger through a sophisticated infrastructure involving water towers, solar-powered submersible pumping solutions, and convenient tapstands throughout a village.
