  • Mercy Corps is implementing a five-year United States Agency for International Development (USAID)-funded Feed the Future Nigeria Rural Resilience Activity (RRA) in Northeast Nigeria. RRA aims to sustainably move people out of chronic vulnerability and poverty.

To achieve this purpose, the Activity will have four components and four cross cutting elements.
