Cash or food in exchange for work promotes resilience
“There is nothing left in our granaries. The harvest was very bad and we could not feed our children. I can only thank those who are helping us to have food on our plate.”
Karimou Karidjo, a 29-year-old farmer from the Tillabéri region of Niger, has had difficulty supporting his wife and four children due to poor harvests.
“I have to find food for my children. To do so, I collect and sell wood, but even then it is difficult to put food on the table,” he says.
