Building for storing supplies (Tondibanda)

True to its commitment to local communities in Niger, AREVA has financed the construction of several facilities in the rural communities of Tondibanda and Zarmagandey, located 25 and 50 km, respectively, northwest of the capital Niamey. They were officially handed over to the communities on November 16, 2012.

Thanks to the combined efforts of this organization and the AREVA group, three classrooms able to hold up to 122 students and a building for grain storage were constructed in the village of Tondibanda. People living in Zarmagandey and the surrounding area will have improved access to healthcare with the integrated medical center that will be set up soon in a new building in that village.

The official handover ceremony was attended by people from the communities, who were very touched by these gestures of solidarity. Nassirou Halidou, a deputy in the national government who represented MA ZAADA at the event, expressed his satisfaction with the partnership between the NGO and the AREVA group, which had agreed to offer its support in this region, where such facilities are lacking.
