In addition, with the outbreak of the crisis in Northeast Nigeria and the resulting arrival of thousands of refugees fleeing from the attacks of Boko Haram, COOPI has been active through Psychosocial Support Itinerant Devices to assist victims fleeing from violence in over 65 villages. We have carried out first-aid psychological activities and refugee reception through actions to promote the proper processing of the atrocities seen and experienced; dialogue and support groups to promote solidarity and social cohesion. Numerous interventions in the field of education are foreseen for primary and secondary student refugees as well as indigenous and internally displaced persons. In 2016, an EU-funded food security project was launched in the Dosso region, which will last 3 years. Furthermore in 2016, we have been working in return centres in Niamey and Agadez with psychosocial support activities.
