Pray for Niger facebook page

The US State Department upgraded Niger’s rating in its annual assessment of how the government is fighting human trafficking. It said that in the last year, Niger had, “convicted more traffickers, trained more law enforcement officers and coordinated with traditional leaders to rescue child victims of forced labor.” It encouraged Niger to work harder to stop armed groups who make use of child soldiers. Niger still does not meet the US’s minimum standards.

Pray that anti-trafficking activists and organizations will be supported in their work.
Pray that the government will continue to take this job seriously (The Bible, 1 Peter 3:11).
