The rising waters in the basins of southern Chad flooded the disadvantaged neighborhoods south of N'Djamena. About 30 schools have become inaccessible. There are therefore more than 2,000 children who find themselves out of school, exposed to exploitation and abuse in an emergency situation as displaced families have settled in makeshift camps. Due to the urgency of basic needs, no education initiative had emerged for the victims settled on the Koundoul site, located 35 km from N'Djamena. It is therefore in view of this situation that ATEDI launched the Educational continuity program in an emergency situation, “School does not stop! ". Until the end of the disaster, it was the only organization to have provided an educational response to the victims settled on the Koundoul site. Thanks to the help of donors and volunteers, more than 1,400 children were educated from November to the end of February.

We sincerely thank all the people who lent us a hand for the realization of this program.

“The children of N'djamena need us. The situation following the floods is already difficult to live with so let's do what we can to support them. Let's make sure they still have access to education!!! »
