As a result of the COVID pandemic these activities have been suspended.

Solidarity Markets.

AECIN is present at various solidarity markets in and around Rennes.

The most important one is the World Solidarity Market in Rennes, which AECIN joins every year. Nigerien crafts as well as books and photos are sold there. The 2011 stall was particularly attractive with its offer of samples of Nigerien food. (see diaporama).
AECIN and Friends of Niger also participate in the Betton World Solidarity Market.

AESCD has been present at the Cesson Christmas Market from 2009 to 2011 and again in 2014 and 2015. The soapstone Nativity cribs have been quite successful there.

In 2015 and 2016 Tarbiyya Tatali attended the Nigerien Cultural Event organized by CoNiF, where its books and booklets as well as the Harmattan publications on Niger were available.

Jumble Sales.

AECIN has taken part in the Canal St Martin Jumble Sale in Rennes for years. A variety of objects on sale in a friendly atmosphere.

Since 2010, AESCD has been present at the Cesson Jumble Sale with its Baobab Refreshment Stall. Cakes made by members, hot and cold drinks, and contacts with the general public. Very few sales on that occasion. We thank the organizing Committee for its financial support, and the Cesson Solidarity Associations, among them AESCD.
