The Sahel-Atlantic regional program (SAHA) brings together 4 countries: Benin, Burkina-Faso, Niger and Togo. It was created in September 2019 by the regrouping of 2 distinct programs. This geographical reorganization is also involved in a reorganization of the organizational and operational schemes (ROOTS) of the whole institution.
In Niger and Burkina-Faso, HI is implementing development projects, particularly in the areas of access to education for children with disabilities and vocational training for young adults with disabilities, functional rehabilitation and road safety.
HI is also implementing projects to strengthen the resilience and social cohesion of vulnerable populations in the cross-border regions of Burkina Faso (Sahel region) and Niger (Tillabéri region) (RECOSA project) and physical and emotional stimulation of malnourished children in both countries.
Finally, since 2015, our organization has been helping the most vulnerable victims of conflicts through one-stop-shop projects for urban refugees in Niamey, Inclusive Humanitarian Action, mental / psychosocial health, basic needs provision.
