Water4Chad: A Nonprofit Organization Bringing Clean Water to Vulnerable Communities in Chad

Water4Chad is a non-profit organization established to provide clean drinking water to vulnerable communities across Chad. Founded in 2017 by a group of young Chadians, Europeans, and Americans, Water4Chad has completed over 76 projects nationwide, supplying clean water to more than 38,000 people.

Why is Water4Chad Important in Chad?

  • Severe Lack of Access to Clean Water: According to UNICEF, only 38% of Chad’s population has access to clean drinking water. This forces millions to rely on contaminated water sources, leading to a high risk of waterborne diseases like cholera, typhoid, and diarrhea.
  • Impact on Health: Waterborne diseases are a leading cause of child mortality in Chad. Access to clean water can save lives, especially among children.
  • Impact on Development: Clean water is essential for economic and social development. It enables children to attend school, women to cultivate crops, and men to work. It also contributes to improved hygiene and sanitation.
