Chad: Programme Overview and Projects

  • The Best Guard against Violent Extremism

    The Best Guard against Violent Extremism

    What can we do if radical groups have an increasingly strong influence on a society? Fighting poverty, offering young people a future, and empowering women to improve their social status are some of the approaches that would help reduce that influence. These are exactly the approaches SWISSAID is taking in Chad and Niger to increase the resilience of the local communities to terrorism and the appeal of violent extremist groups.
  • Strong mothers, strong girls

    Strong mothers, strong girls

    In Chad, very few women can read or write. This will only change when mothers like Angéline Yakeneloum stand up for their girls. Because strong girls need strong role models.
