Chad is a landlocked country located in central Africa. Home to more than 11 million people, Chad is one of the poorest nations in the world. It currently ranks 175th of 182 countries on the United Nations Human Development Index.

Chad gained its independence from France in 1960, but since then has been plagued with political instability and civil war. A complex mix of 150 people groups has resulted in tribalism and severe ethnic conflicts. The conflict in neighboring Darfur, Sudan, has affected Chad as well. At the height of the conflict, more than 400,000 refugees had poured into Chad.

Chad is primarily an agricultural economy with more than 80 percent of the people making a living through animal husbandry and subsistence farming. In this nation so dependent on strong harvests, the frequent prolonged droughts plunge many into even deeper poverty. The life expectancy is just 48 years. One of the significant contributing factors to Chad’s underdevelopment is widespread corruption. Sadly, Chad is often referred to as the world’s most corrupt nation.

On the religious front, 52 percent of the people are Muslim, 38 percent are Christian, and the remainder is a mix of ethno-religionists. The government is secular, and Chadians experience significant religious freedom despite a strong Muslim majority. Efforts by indigenous and expatriate missions have led to the identification of 97 least evangelized people groups. Even so, Chad still has more unreached people than any other African country.
