COOPI has been present in Niger since 2012. Today, the country faces several emergencies - the crisis of Lake Chad, since 2015, caused by the Boko Haram group, in the region of Diffa, with about 50,000 IDPs and refugees; the crisis at the northern border with Burkina Faso and Mali, since 2018, for the presence of armed groups with about 25,000 IDPs and refugees and the new crisis in the area of Maradi due to the arrival, to date, of about 50,000 Nigerians in the state of Sokoto, fleeing extreme violence.

In the face of these great emergencies, COOPI intervenes in the region of Diffa with projects of protection, education in emergency, psychosocial support and mental health and collaborate with institutional partners such as the Regional Directorate of Protection, Education and Health. With the same strategy, COOPI implements nutrition projects in the northern area of Tillabéri. In the area of Maradi, COOPI is studying the current emergency, in association with other humanitarian organizations. For COOPI interventions, beneficiaries are among the most vulnerable groups, such as women, children and people with disabilities.
