Niger is one of the poorest countries in the world, ranking last on the United Nations Development Program’s (UNDP) Human Development Index (HDI). Since 2001, following the initiative of Agathe Bagnoud, godmother of François-Xavier, FXB has been constructing and rehabilitating wells in northern Niger with the assistance of the local Tuareg population. Many of these wooden wells become inoperable due to wear and tear so entry points are rebuilt and upgraded with cement encasements that protect the water source below. These wells vastly improve the living conditions of the northern Niger populations that reside in the remote and arid area.
