access to healthcare
Even in good years, a third of the population remains undernourished. Instability and climate change, combined with poverty and a rapidly growing population, mean that Chadians frequently struggle to feed their families.
When rains fail, people have no way of feeding themselves; the majority of the population depend on subsistence farming or herding. In 2012, drought left over 3 million Chadians in need of food, according to the World Food Programme.
High child mortality rate
With poor nutrition and the threat of disease, 20% of children (or 1 in 5) do not live to see their fifth birthday. (WHO
Nearly two-thirds of people in Chad live below the poverty line and the population remains among the world’s poorest. The 2010 United Nations Human Development Index ranked Chad near the bottom, at 163 out of 169 countries.
The World Bank has pulled out of programmes, because oil revenues are not being invested by the government into alleviating poverty.
The western Kanem region (along the border with Niger) has some of the most shocking hunger statistics in the world. Over the past decade, child malnutrition rates here have dipped only once below the World Health Organization’s emergency threshold of 15%

In response the educational needs of the children who are out of school, EAC supports two projects in Chad; one of in partnership with UNHCR, and another in collaboration with UNICEF, where the programs supports government efforts to increase primary school completion rates.
Main Barriers to education
Lack of resources
Quality of service
Low skilled teachers
Overcrowding in classrooms (average of 64 to 1 classroom, in urban areas there are 100+ students to a single classroom)
Quality of life
Clean water is in high demand, but poor neighborhoods, called quartiers, on N'Djamena outskirts don’t benefit from the city’s utilities grid. Instead, they rely on shallow wells or, if they can afford it, water vendors. Even then, there is no guarantee that the water is clean. Last year, over 17,000 people contracted cholera in Chad, with thousands of cases in the capital alone.
