This primary school library project is an initiative to make improvements to the pre-existing school library. The goal is to make it more learner-focused, with more hands on activities that will enhance English reading and speaking skills.
 
  
The library functions as it is but it could be improved with better quality equipment and furniture to encourage more use by students and teachers alike. Once these improvements are made, the hopes by the school and others that the library’s use will be extended to the community. This is crucial because all subjects at the primary school are taught in English and tests are written in English. The major challenge comes from the fact that most children in the area and surrounding areas know very little English. Even many of the caretakers speak little to no English so they are incapable of assisting their children with homework or studies. This project has the potential to get kids more excited about reading with the addition of new books and teaching tools and in turn increase overall knowledge in various subjects.

A large village in Niger (home to 4,000 people) lacks abundant resources. Due to their lack of resources like basic water and sanitation, they face many infectious diseases. The poor quality of the water is causing severe diarrhea and malnutrition, particularly in children, where their immune systems are not strong enough to fight.
  
Education is a crucial factor to the prevention of HIV because those students who fail out or drop out of school, sometimes for something as implausible as a language barrier in their native country are more likely to engage in risky behaviors such as depending on others for money in exchange for sex, often unprotected. This project will hopefully, with the support of parents and teachers, get kids more excited about learning and enhance the likelihood that they will further their education beyond just the basic level because they have confidence in their own ability to succeed.

This project aims to construct a water tower and four separate water pumps. The Programme d’Hydraulique Villageoise et Pastorale Belge (Hydralique Program Village and Pastoral of Belgium) will pay for the construction of the water tower and pipes. They have sent requests to many villages around the region asking for 250,000 CFA per water pump to be placed into a village bank account for document purposes. Their request to our village calls for the construction of four water pumps.

The people of the village are requesting financial assistance to fund three water pumps, and will provide the 250,000 CFA needed for one water pump. Upon construction of the water tower, water pumps, and pipes to track to the four water pumps, the five members of the water tower committee and the four water pump sellers will be trained in water tower maintenance and repair by a representative of Hydraulic. Several months later, a representative of Hydraulic will conduct a site visit to the village to assess and update the situation.

A large village in Niger (home to 4,000 people) lacks abundant resources. Due to their lack of resources like basic water and sanitation, they face many infectious diseases. The poor quality of the water is causing severe diarrhea and malnutrition, particularly in children, where their immune systems are not strong enough to fight.

This project aims to construct a water tower and four separate water pumps. The Programme d’Hydraulique Villageoise et Pastorale Belge (Hydralique Program Village and Pastoral of Belgium) will pay for the construction of the water tower and pipes. They have sent requests to many villages around the region asking for 250,000 CFA per water pump to be placed into a village bank account for document purposes. Their request to our village calls for the construction of four water pumps.

The people of the village are requesting financial assistance to fund three water pumps, and will provide the 250,000 CFA needed for one water pump. Upon construction of the water tower, water pumps, and pipes to track to the four water pumps, the five members of the water tower committee and the four water pump sellers will be trained in water tower maintenance and repair by a representative of Hydraulic. Several months later, a representative of Hydraulic will conduct a site visit to the village to assess and update the situation.
