Niamey is located at the crossroads of the Sahel and sub-Saharan Africa along the eastern bank of Niger River and is the capital of Niger and the country’s largest city, home to most of the country’s administrative offices and manufacturing industry.

Dating back to the 18th century, when French colonisation of the region brought the town to prominence, the population has grown considerably because of the influx of young people who migrate to the city in search of employment.
