Announcing Grants available


The Friends of Niger is an organization founded by Returned Peace Corps Volunteers to initiate and support activities related to Niger and its people.  Friends of Niger is calling for proposals for a new competitive grant making process.  We have established two grant review cycles per year.  Applications will only be considered for funding during one of these two grant periods. 

All applications to be considered for funding in the next cycle must be received by May 31, 2021.  A second review period will be announced later this year. 

Les Amis du Niger (FON) accordent de petites subventions pour soutenir des projets qui profitent directement au peuple nigérien. Les subventions peuvent varier entre 500 $ et 5,000 $. Le financement des subventions provient des dons des membres et des sympathisants de FON.

Les demandes de financement doivent être reçues avant le 31 mai 2021. Toutes les demandes admissibles vont compéter pour les fonds disponibles en fonction de leur score.

Une deuxième période de demande est prévue pour novembre 2021 (détails à annoncer).


Join FON at Peace Corps Connect Nashville, June 19-21, 2014

Join Friends of Niger at Peace Corps Connect in Nashville June 19-21! FON President John Soloninka will be there and has reserved a group space for us.

Over 1.3 million people participated in Peace Corps 50th Anniversary events in 2011, illustrating the strong desire of the Peace Corps community to come together to share experiences, discuss issues, share best practices and learn about different cultures.

The National Peace Corps Association’s (NPCA) annual Peace Corps Connect is an important continuation of this spirit and an opportunity for the community to reconnect with Peace Corps friends, meet new Returned Peace Corps Volunteers, and to network with various organizations face-to-face.
