Summary of the project

The housing support project for Malian refugees in Niamey is executed by the NGO-DFR with the technical and financial support of the SELAVP Foundation.

The objective of the project is to build houses of 16m2 to meet the basic needs of refugee populations in Niamey, highly vulnerable due to crises.

Its general objective was to improve the living conditions of refugees and asylum seekers living in urban areas in Niger and aims to provide the most vulnerable refugees with specific adapted, innovative, ecological and protective accommodation.

The strategy developed for household support was an assessment of the socioeconomic status of some refugee households. This made it possible to identify a categorization of needs according to the type of household.
