Chad: Programme Overview and Projects


  • Equality in Chad: Women gain ground

    Equality in Chad: Women gain ground

    In Chad, women have drawn the short straw in every respect. Often, they are victims of violence, have no rights, education or money, although they have worked harder than men. Yet, the multiple challenges also offer numerous approaches for solutions.
  • Clean attitude: 16 new wells and 5 toilets in southern Chad

    Clean attitude: 16 new wells and 5 toilets in southern Chad

    No clean water, no functioning toilets, and hunger – many people in Chad have a miserable time. In the south of the country, SWISSAID’s project to construct new wells and toilet facilities is a big success – and working against the misery achieves results.
  • A New Start in the Oil Zone

    A New Start in the Oil Zone

    People living in the oil region in southern Chad have two options: either to make a fresh start, or to leave sooner or later to find work as day labourers. SWISSAID’s initiative is to help farmers and their families find a future near their home – and to deal with the adversities of environmental destruction, corrupt village chiefs or greedy corporate groups.
