In Tillabéri Region, one of Niger’s seven regions, non-state armed actors have threatened, kidnapped, and assassinated villagers, forcing them to abandon their homes and seek safety in other areas of the country. 

After fleeing their villages, many displaced people arrived in this displacement site in Ouallam, around 100 km from Niger’s capital Niamey. In March 2022, this displacement site hosted 5506 people. 

This website provides an immersive view of different parts of the displacement site in Ouallam, while also sharing a moving testimony from one of the people living in the site.
