Together to end child marriage in Chad

68% of girls are married at 18 and 25% at 15. If nothing is done, this figure is likely to double by 2050.

Together to end child marriage in 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.

Quenching thirst for Chad’s Children

Lack of clean water and sanitation facilities affects families, especially those in rural areas where only 38% have access to clean water and only 3% have access sanitation facilities. 

We are working to ensure all children have access to safe drinking water and improved sanitation facilities near their homes, schools and health centers.
