The Enhanced Integrated Framework tells World Leather how it is working with the government of Niger to modernise tanneries, train leather workers and set up more advanced systems for skin collection and exports.

Through a programme of training schemes and support in the landlocked West African country Niger, more women are learning leather craftwork skills that are usually performed by men, and they are flourishing.
