Niger is part of the diverse Desert Sand region on the African continent, where C&MA workers introduce Christ equally amongst the upper middle class as they do amidst the abandoned, marginalized and downtrodden.

It takes many forms. In some cases compassion ministries meet the urgent, direct physical needs of children and families grasping to survive the toll of drought or the grip of AIDS. Other workers focus on developing leaders and training nationals to better serve and connect with their own people.
