What is the relative size of the expatriate community? How would you describe overall morale among expatriates?

Low morale. - Oct 29, 2017
Not large, mostly missionaries in country for years. Overall, morale is good, but the deteriorating security situation has them nervous. - Oct 18, 2017
Morale will be what you make of it, if you hate where you live then you will hate it; if you see it as an adventure of the day, then find one amazing atypical thing that happens and enjoy that memory. Lots of people from various countries that enjoy to hang out and host new friends or be hosted. It's like any place you move to, if you want friends, go make some. - Aug 2, 2015
Sizable. Between the Americans and the French, there are quite a few -- or maybe it just seems that way since all are mostly confined to Niamey. - Jul 7, 2013
