Meet Santou. In Niger, West Africa, recurring droughts make it difficult for her to grow enough food to feed her family — especially this year. Hunger is a daily worry. Watch this video to find out how the goats she received from Mercy Corps have changed her life.
Our own Liz Hummer is visiting Mercy Corps’ programs in Niger, and shared this photo:
"How many of you want to go to school?" That was the question we asked this portion of another teen girls group yesterday, some of whom are already married, all of whom are told they have to work at home instead of get an education - and all of whom want that to be different. Mercy Corps is working to change the beliefs that prevent these girls from staying in school.
