Chad’s economy is based essentially on agriculture and sheep farming, but prolonged periods of drought expose the population to a permanent state of vulnerability. The situation is further compounded by the crises affecting neighbouring states, which generate a large number of refugees.
COOPI’s long-standing presence in the country, going back to 1976, grants us an in-depth understanding of the problems that plague the region, which is why we invest in awareness-raising activities and training in communities – we care about children suffering from malnutrition and its gravest consequences and provide support to refugees and native populations, by improving healthcare structures, as well as the technical expertise of healthcare staff..
Additionally, we improve rural populations’ living conditions: namely, we endeavour to strengthen civil society organisations, establishing local development plans, and boost the production of peanuts and sesame- the country’s two most commonly grown products. Finally, we train farmers in modern techniques of product cultivation, conservation, processing and marketing.
