Why do we say Niger is Rising

Why do we say Niger is rising? Because initiatives like MCA-Niger are helping municipalities like Birni N’Gaouré Commune. Hadjia Maiga Fati, Mayor of Birni N’Gaouré, notes that her community (in Dosso) will benefit from the construction of a rural road, which, she says, will contribute to improving the living conditions.”As a mother and mayor of a city, I am overjoyed, as this project will have a significant impact in the lives of the peaceful women you see here. Today, if a woman has difficulty giving birth at Falmey, she may have to take a journey on a presently unsafe road. We hope that all this will end soon.
