One of the Highest Levels of Hunger in the World

Chad holds one of the highest levels of hunger in the world, according to the World Food Program. A whopping 66% of its population live in extreme poverty. And, out of 189 countries in the 2019 Human Development Index, Chad is ranked 187.

A highly agricultural population, livelihoods have been torn apart due to global warming and climate change.

With all this considered, one thing remains clear: The people of Chad are resilient and, with the support of donors like you, families in need there can access opportunities to break the chains of poverty and move toward success.
