niger-partenaireAntenna France is a charity NGO fighting child malnutrition with spirulina farms and providing humanitarian aid in Niger.

In 2007 Antenna launched a spirulina humanitarian program with a spirulina farm in the town of Dogondoutchi. The team and main partner Tarbiyya Tatali Mahamadou Saidou are now fully self-reliant and in full control of the production process.

The Antenna NGO supports the charity work of the local team in Niger from afar. The ongoing climate of instability of the country since 2010 yet impedes the fieldwork Antenna can undertake. The nutritional situation of the country is still worrisome, but the government seems to be taking things in hand with the implementation at the end of 2011 of its national “3 N” program (Nigeriens feed Nigeriens).
