Response to Humanitarian Crisis

In Niger, poverty and low school enrollment rates pose significant challenges. Since 2009, Zakat Foundation has partnered with local organizations to empower women and children through education initiatives, food security, livelihood improvement, emergency response and water programs. The Ibadourrahmane School Complex has supported orphans and vulnerable children, but resource constraints hinder progress. To address these challenges, the project aims to empower families, amplify the school's impact, and enhance the living conditions of the children. Our Orphan Sponsorship Program in 18 countries, including Niger, provides financial assistance for essential needs like education, healthcare, and shelter, empowering families and enhancing children's lives.
