Overview

Since 2006, Amman Imman has been working in the Tahoua region of Niger, and more specifically in the departments of Tchintabaradene and Abalak. We focus on the Azawak valley, covering an area over 80,000 square miles, with a population over 500,000 people.  The dominant ethnic groups of the region are the Wodaabe Fulani and the Tuaregs.  Our work thus far has helped over 100,000 people have access to clean and sustainable year-round water.  Other projects conducted by Amman Imman, depending on the type of project, have supported over 15,000 people on a year-round basis.
