Nigerien Children Visit the Train Station Niamey

<< Back

On Friday, June 12th, 2015, 300 children took part in a dream-come-true event by visiting the train station in Niamey and witnessing the construction of the Nigerien railroad, a project their grand-parents had awaited for 80 years.

Among the kids that came to discover the railroad and train for the first time were grand-children of individuals who were trained in rail-related jobs in Niger several decades ago

This real moment of pleasure was made possible by the Bluezone of Niamey. The kids also enjoyed a lesson on trains, the history of train in Niger, and the West African train loop.
