A warm Nigerien welcome

August 3, 2012
Following an incredible nine day trip to Niger, S+L's Kris Dmytrenko, David LeRoss and I are back in Toronto. As promised to you earlier, here is a sneak peak at some of the people we saw. This happened on Day 5.
More than that, Kris, David and I spent the entire day interviewing locals and beneficiaries in a village just north of Maradi. Our team, along with members of Caritas Niger and Development & Peace, were treated to a very warm and hospitable welcome when we arrived.
Check out the video posted above.
