Humanity & Inclusion in Chad

Our teams worked in Chad on several occasions between 1982 and 2000, with its primary focus on physical rehabilitation activities. Since October 2014, we have focused on reducing the threat of explosive remnants of war and provide essential assistance to the victims of these weapons. The country also suffers the impact of climate change. 

The presence of these weapons is a major obstacle to the country’s development. Thousands of people are living under the constant threat of landmines and explosive remnants of war, the legacy of four decades of successive wars in Chad.

Areas of Intervention

  • Mine and ERW action including non-technical and technical surveys, risk education, mine clearance, and weapons clearance
  • Victim assistance
  • Rehabilitation and prosthetics
  • Inclusive education
  • Socio-economic inclusion
  • Inclusive local development and support for community solidarity

Humanity & Inclusion's 160-member staff implements emergency response and development projects, and builds on its core activities, including mine action, assistance to people with disabilities, inclusion, physical rehabilitation, and inclusive education. Teams seek innovative and sustainable solutions to better respond to actual needs and to support the socio-economic development of communities in need. For example, in the north of the country, Humanity & Inclusion has launched a large-scale Demining and Economic Development Project (PRODECO) in consortium with Mine Advisory Group, SECADEV and the Swiss Foundation for Mine Action.

The ODYSSEE 2025 project has also enabled Humanity & Inclusion to build on its innovative approach to mine action through the use of drones, electronic tablets and new technologies in order to improve the responsiveness and relevance of its armed violence reduction actions.
