When I was contacted to join a team to work in the irrigation sector in Niger I didn’t have to think twice. It is true that in Niger, security is an issue and that many embassies give a negative travel advice. However, the possibility to work in irrigation sector in Niger, outweighed the negative travel advice.
One of the main reasons to start travelling and working worldwide was to get out of Amsterdam. At least, it was for me. But there are still a lot of things I can enjoy in the city.
