Niamey, Niger, 23 January 2015 - Today, the United States Government, acting through the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), announced the launch of “YAWWA,” a 3-year, $1.9 Million project that will seek to empower social innovators and entrepreneurs in Niger to develop and act upon innovative and practical solutions to development problems.

A collaborative effort between USAID and SNV Netherlands Development Organisation, the YAWAA project – which stands for Youth, Advocacy, Women, Work and Alliances – recognizes the many Nigeriens who are already developing creative ideas and the local entrepreneurs that are already providing beneficial services to their communities. USAID’s funding will seek to promote and scale-up these local, innovative solutions. Equipping local communities to adapt and recover from shocks and stresses builds resilience and is a key component of USAID’s resilience agenda.

Over the last two years, the United States’ Government, through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), has worked to develop a new regional family planning strategy for our cooperation in West Africa.  This process involved extensive consultations whereby we learned from government partners, development experts, and community organizations about West Africans’ goals for family planning as well as the challenges they face in bringing about this change.

USAID also took into account experiences from its past projects.  We analyzed the latest data on family planning and demographics in the region as well as the many inputs it received.  In the end, the final strategy is grounded in three pillars of support: 1) provision of family planning services; 2) improving commodity security to prevent stock-outs; and 3) improving the use evidence for family planning policies to expand the reach of services.
