The Chad economy has come to a standstill with the fall in the price of oil that forced the country to rely on agriculture and pastoralism. Frequent droughts also expose the population to acute vulnerability, particularly from a nutritional point of view.
The presence of COOPI in the country, dating back to 1976, allows us to know in depth the problems that afflict it. Today we provide assistance to refugees, IDPs and indigenous population affected by the Lake Chad crisis. COOPI also takes care of children affected by malnutrition and promotes education in emergency projects, while providing psychological support to those suffering from post-traumatic stress disorders.
COOPI also supports shelters for unaccompanied or separated children, providing management training, staff training on psychosocial support, promoting public events on children's rights and against child labour. To improve the living conditions of rural populations and respond to chronic food insecurity, COOPI invests in resilience interventions that enable the population to overcome shocks due to lack of livelihoods.
