Volunteer Chad

Ranked as the world's most corrupt country, Chad's infrastructure has been repeatedly ripped to pieces in a sequence of conflicts that have raged since independence in 1960.

Chad is now ranked in 184th place out of 186 countries and territories in 2013 based upon the life expectancy, literacy, access to knowledge and living standards of a country.

Most of its population live in abject poverty, life expectancy is under fifty years old, 20% of all children die before their fifth birthday and less than 1% of the population has access to electricity.

Yet the volunteer work sector in Chad is very sporadic not least because its not a very attractive country, its hard to travel within with just 267 km of roads being paved in the entire country and unlike many other African countries, its very expensive to stay there. Add to that the fact that aid programs in Chad are regularly suspended when aid workers are kidnapped by bandits operating in the country, you get the picture why a potential volunteer might look elsewhere for opportunities!

As such what volunteer projects there are tend to stay away from Chad. What volunteer work there is focuses on humanitarian aid particularly in the drought ridden areas, education, maternity services for women (one in every 14 women die during childbirth) and the inevitable work with orphaned and abandoned children.

If you run or know of a volunteer work project in the Chad let us know by contacting us here. We look forward to hearing from you!
