It is commonly known that Niger is one of the poorest countries in the world but I thought I would just check out who else was on the list and where exactly Niger ranked. I found this article based on the CIA World Factbook 2008.
One quick fact that blew me away was that 63% of the total poplulation of Niger live on less than $1 a day.
The bottom line...
I just have no clue what it's like to live like that.
