My name is Haoua Sidibé, a political scientist with a special concern for women and development. I worked with national non-govermental organizations (NGOs) from 1999 to 2005. Then I was recruited to an international NGO during the terrible food crisis in Niger.
In 2007, I was recruited by Mercy Corps for the position of Nutrition Officer and Translator, since I speak both English and French. From that position during the food crisis, I was appointed to the position of Program Manager in Niamey, Niger's capital, and I regularly visit our projects in the city and surrounding communities.
My task is to coordinate community health programs and income-generating activities in Niamey by managing daily and monthly partnerships, communications and direct activities in the field.
