Soumana, his sister Hadjo, and children from Kosseye Satom pose for a picture

Soumana Kelessi, who wears oversized sunglasses, poses next to his sister Hadjo Kelessi. They live in Kosseye Satom, a village15 kilometers from Niamey, the capital of Niger, consisting of small, mud-brick homes packed with numerous family members. They are surrounded by a bevy of children. Niger’s fertility rate, 7.6 children per woman, is the highest in Sub-Saharan Africa. Photo: © Stephan Gladieu / World Bank
