UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential.

Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone.

And we never give up.

For every child, hope.

Chad continues to face a combination of rapid-onset and protracted humanitarian crises that have been exacerbated by the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. The humanitarian needs overview reveals that 6.1 million people will need humanitarian assistance in 2022, a 17% increase compared to 2021. This persistent humanitarian situation is related to the growing insecurity in some parts of the country and in neighboring countries, natural disasters, growing food insecurity, high rates of malnutrition, economic crisis, and political instability in a context of climate challenges. Humanitarian access remains limited in the north provinces and in Lake Chad basin, particularly in the island areas and the border area between Nigeria, Niger, and Chad.

UNICEF in partnership with national and international development and humanitarian actors, supports the Chadian Government in developing programmes and policies to promote and respect children’s rights to survival, education and protection.

To this end, UNICEF Chad has 4 zonal offices (Abeche, Bol, Mongo and Moundou), 2 outpost (Farchana and Faya) and a central office that ensure regular implementation and monitoring of the cooperation program. Through its offices, UNICEF ensures proximity to populations in need and fosters accountability to these populations.
