Engage in Chad
Chad, officially known as the Republic of Chad, is a landlocked country located at the crossroads of North and Central Africa. Bordered by Libya to the north, Sudan to the east, the Central African Republic to the south, Cameroon and Nigeria to the southwest, and Niger to the west, Chad’s geographical position has shaped its unique blend of cultural influences. The country’s physical landscape is characterized by a large basin surrounded by mountains, with Lake Chad at its center. Once a much larger lake, Lake Chad remains a significant natural feature and a vital water source for the region. Chad’s diverse ethnic groups, including the Sara, Arab, Kanembu, Masalit, and Toubou, contribute to its rich cultural heritage. While Chad has faced challenges resulting from its colonial-drawn borders and intermittent conflicts, it continues to strive for unity, progress, and development. With an economy reliant on natural resources such as petroleum, uranium, and Lake Chad’s fish, Chad faces eco-alerts such as desertification and lack of potable water. Despite these challenges, Chad’s resilient people and cultural diversity make it a fascinating and important country in the heart of Africa.
