As the largest country in West Africa, Niger has over three billion cubic meters of drinkable water available underground. The problem is, few can afford to build systems to bring it to the surface.

Around half of Niger’s population lives below the poverty line. Between the desert landscape and shortage of clean water, farming—and life—are difficult throughout the country. These are some of the reasons Niger consistently ranks near the bottom of the U.N. Human Development Index.
