The Sahel Region

EAI has been implementing full-scale international development projects in the African Sahel since 2008. Our work began in Niger and Chad and every year we scale our reach winning and leading complex multi-country, multi-year impactful programming. Today, we have country offices run by excellent local staff in Cameroon, Mali, Niger, Burkina Faso, and Chad. EAI is a leader in peacebuilding and countering violent extremism across the region. Our programs catalyze emerging community leaders, build bridges between diverse stakeholders and utilize media and technology to forward sustainable solutions. We lead projects on gender equality, civic engagement, community resilience, and use innovative new media and technology. We plan to continue to expand across the region and the continent in partnership with local organizations and global donors.
