Who We Help

The Nomads of Niger

The Nomads of Niger live in harmony with the desert that they have made their homeland for thousands of years.  They love their desert lives, but struggle to eke out an existence in an increasingly harsh, arid and constrained environment.  There are few remaining societies on Earth that are as remote, isolated and faithful to tradition as these nomadic people of the Sahel and Sahara desert.

The Tuareg People

The Wodaabe People


Our Work

Tuareg men from the Aïr region spend 5-7 months each year on camel caravans, traveling to Bilma for dates and salt, and then to Kano to trade them for millet and other foodstuffs, household tools, and luxury items such as spices, perfume, and cloth.
