Investing in Grassroots Development

Grassroots transformation takes time and dedication. For more than a decade, our community focused, ground-up approach has created life changing programs for thousands of rural poor in Niger. Emphasizing community focus distinguishes RAIN from many other NGO's -  supporting our programs is an investment, not a one-time gift. In partnership with RAIN, Western African nomadic communities are provided with the tools and support to build durable and replicable programs tailored to their unique needs and goals. 

Our approach fosters high community investment and emphasizes:

  • Local ownership of the decision making process
  • Use of natural resources and traditional methods integrated with new methods
  • Participation of all members of the community
  • Preservation of traditional, indigenous culture
  • Implementation of self evaluating processes

We are indebted to our core of individual supporters and friends. Our work would also not be possible without the partnership of foundations and businesses. We are grateful to all our partners for their belief in our effectiveness on the ground in Niger, and their recognition of support as a far reaching investment in sustainable development.
