The Voice of the Lake

The Humanitarian Needs Overview (HNO) indicates that of the 20 million people in urgent need and humanitarian assistance in the Lake Chad Basin, 3.7 million are in Niger. Women and young girls are among the most vulnerable categories with 51%. They often face problems of access to basic social services, particularly reproductive health services for women of childbearing age and education for young girls. For young boys, the precariousness of the situation, exposing them to idleness, a source of poverty, facilitates their easy enrollment by the GANEs.
