Feeding the Future

Puwixwecgcprvto2xxtx

About 87 percent of Chad’s mainly rural population live life below the poverty line. Numerous conflicts and climate related disasters have caused Chad to obtain one of the highest levels of hunger in the world. Though many families depend on farming and livestock, the El Niño weather phenomenon is creating a large challenge for farming. Many children experience low height for their age as a result of chronic malnutrition and maternal health is very poor.

WFP is working hard to ensure children have a future. WFP provides nutritious meals to 120,000 children in food insecure areas. In these locations, where food production is poor, school meals encourage school enrollment. Without this incentive, enrollment rates are very low. Additionally, WFP provides an emergency school meal programme in the Lake Chad region which is currently supporting 15,000 children.  

Vote Feeding the Future to give children in Chad the nutrition they need to be successful.
