Niger: Djamila’s Story Synopsis

Djamila had to leave home, school and her friends to help her mother beg for food and money. Farmers and their families in Niger are facing a food crisis after droughts have caused their crops to fail and food prices to increase by up to 30% in some areas. Unable to grow or buy enough food to survive, these families are now heading to cities and towns in Niger and across the border in Nigeria to find work or to beg to try and ward off hunger.

Directed by Save the Children Niger.
