Spoons & Purses Niger

Artisan Salah Amzak

Niger in West Africa is the world’s poorest country. Starvation and malnutrition are endemic among the Under-5’s. The country suffered a terrible famine in 2005, partially induced by the IMF’s insistence that the country should concentrate on Cash Crops for export rather than feeding it’s own children.

The people of Niger need both immediate help and a fair chance to develop sustainable trade. Cadwyn has worked with the Handicraft Co-operatives in Maradi and Dakoro in the poorest region of the country. We can offer you now decorated Wooden Spoons – all the profits of which will be donated to the work of Christian Aid’s partners in Niger – and also hand-made leather purses with children’s names which we are marketing to develop their trade.
