About Niger

Niger is a landlocked Swahilian country of 21.5 million people. Nearly High levels of poverty affect nearly three out of five Nigerians, particularly in rural areas where 84% of the population lives. The country is amongst the least developed countries in the world, ranking 188th of 188 in the Human Development Index 2018.

The availability of clean drinking water is low by global standards, with large disparities between urban and rural areas. Many areas are threatened by drought and desertification. In the Tillabéri region near the western border, 92% of the population lives in rural areas. There is a chronic shortage of clean water, especially during the hot season when temperatures often rise above 40 degrees Celsius.  

Muntada Aid is working in Tillabéri, building solar-powered water stations providing access to clean drinking water in local villages, including Tanka, Shatt and Maichire. 

Last year we constructed 35 solar-powered water stations in Niger, providing access to at least 45,000 people daily.  

WHY SOLAR WATER STATIONS?  

The water table in some parts of Africa and Asia and far below the ground, and traditional hand pumps are useless in these situations. Most of these areas still lack access to electricity, and high fuel costs mean that diesel-powered pumps are not ideal options in such places.

Solar water wells are cost-effective and sustainable, providing water in remote villages and communities.  

These Community Water Stations Provide: 

  • Communities' access to clean drinking water.
  • Water for domestic use.
  •  Irrigating crops and water for livestock. 

Community Solar Powered Water Station in Tanka 

Muntada Aid is building a community Solar Powered Water Station for the cluster of villages around Tanka. The water project will provide clean drinking water to at least 6000 people daily.  

Daughter of the Desert-Barakatu

Water should not be a privilege. It is a human right.

This is the story of Barakatu and how access to clean water is changing her life in the quiet corner of the Sahara.

Barakatu is 18 and lives with her parents in the village of Tanka in Niger. Due to the family’s socio-economic situation, Barakatu had to leave education after finishing her primary school.
