About Niger

Niger is a landlocked West African country. It is home to 36 People Groups, 28 of whom remain unreached according to the Joshua Project. Its largest People Group is the Hausa whose original homeland straddled the border between Niger and Nigeria. The Hausa of Niger have adopted the kulle tradition of Islam, meaning that they seclude their women. The Hausa are very friendly to strangers and in their language the word for stranger and guest is the same. Christianity is not officially outlawed in Niger but radical Islam is spreading and causing tension.
