Niamey - Post Report Question and Answers

What is the relative size of the expatriate community? How would you describe overall morale among expatriates?

We are in survival mode together. - Aug 2022

Small/Medium expat community, heavy missionary and NGO presence. Morale seemed generally good. - Apr 2020

Don't know of many outside the Embassy. Morale is half and half. Personally, I liked my time in Niamey. - Jul 2019

Low morale. - Oct 2017

Not large, mostly missionaries in country for years. Overall, morale is good, but the deteriorating security situation has them nervous. - Oct 2017

Morale will be what you make of it, if you hate where you live then you will hate it; if you see it as an adventure of the day, then find one amazing atypical thing that happens and enjoy that memory. Lots of people from various countries that enjoy to hang out and host new friends or be hosted. It's like any place you move to, if you want friends, go make some. - Aug 2015

Sizable. Between the Americans and the French, there are quite a few -- or maybe it just seems that way since all are mostly confined to Niamey. - Jul 2013
