For untold thousands of children in Chad, just getting clean water to drink and food to eat is a struggle, particularly for orphans and the poorest of the poor in this destitute country – and the idea of going to school is beyond the realm of possibility.

But thanks to the supporters of Bread and Water for Africa® hundreds of Chadian boys and girls not only have their school fees paid through a tuition assistance program operated by our partner Hope Services, they are also provided the required uniforms. The costs for their examination fees are also covered.

For us and our partners at Hope Services, the mission of educating children is one in the same: “Giving the underprivileged the same opportunities to be educated like others, and leading poor children into established self-reliant individuals,” states director Esther Ndichafah.
