Tchad is one of the poorest and underprivileged countries in the world. Less than 46% of the Chadian population have access to safe drinking water. To ensure resilient societies, IAS Tchad implements water projects in challenging areas that other organisations have bypassed.
Since 2009 IAS has drilled more than 250 boreholes in the Central and Eastern region of Tchad. By drilling new water wells, organising hygiene and sanitation campaigns, and organising water committees we strive to make communities in Tchad as independent as possible.
In rural villages we also organise Self Help Groups for economically and/or socially disadvantaged women. The purpose of the project is to encourage women’s entrepreneurship through training in local income-generating activities, such as sewing, breeding goats, growing and selling peanuts, and drying and packaging of vegetables.
Your contribution will help us as we strive to reach some of the poorest people in Tchad.
