Description

Starting from March 2016 migrants and local community members in the Nigerien town of Agadez have been trained how to make bricks using only plastic and sand. OIM Niger and the Italian NGO Terre Solidali are behind this innovative and eco-friendly training project. The Italian NGO, based in Niamey, has a solid experience in this EU-Certified technique and has provided an excellent training to the participants. The produced bricks will be then used to offer a paving service in the town of Agadez.
The training has been received with optimism by local authorities and stakeholders. The principal objectives are to encourage community development project, provide alternatives to irregular migration and offer professional training to the youth while helping the planet.
