The IOM Niger team participated this weekend in the 14th Air Festival in #Iferouane. On this occasion, an important forum for socio-cultural and economic exchanges, IOM launched its community stabilization activities (CS) funded by the European Union in Niger.
In this spirit, a gala match between two football clubs were organized to reach the youth of Iférouane and to sensitize them on social cohesion between migrants and transit and host communities. We went over information on our activities and the Resource and Response Mechanism for Migrants (MRRM), but also on activities related to citizen engagement and peace. Performances of music, dance and participatory theater also animated the festival.
IOM's CS projects in Niger focus on activities related to the revitalization of the local economy, access to basic social services, but also to strengthening social cohesion and good governance.
