World Vision Chad


Fueled by interethnic clashes, Chad has experienced significant instability since its independence in 1960. The delicate situation for Chad's population is made more precarious by conflicts in neighbouring countries, which drive refugees over its borders.  Additionally, the effects of climate change, which are aggravating the desertification and drying up Lake Chad, complicate things further.

Since 2003, the economy became dependent on oil. But, a drop in oil prices in 2014 plunged the country into a deep recession. 

All of these issues affect children most. Our teams have been working in Chad since 1985. We work with communities, local actors, the government and the United Nations to improve the well-being of children, through emergency and development programmes.
