  • Personal Background

    RAIN's mission is to work with nomadic and rural peoples of West Africa to improve their lives through education, water security, agriculture and income-producing activities. These durable, locally rooted programs promote literacy and empowerment while sustaining cultural traditions through the Sahel and Sahara. RAIN believes that education provides the path to thriving in today's world for nomadic people. Parents in Niger, West Africa agree. RAIN partners with these motivated parents to develop grassroots programs so that their dreams of educating their children and themselves become a reality. The United Nations has declared that investment in the world's women and girls is the key to alleviating poverty, malnutrition, poor health and lack of education. RAIN agrees. We've been at the forefront of cultivating girls' education in Niger, West Africa and empowering women to spark transformation in their communities.
