In Chad, less than 40% of primary age children attend school.  We're working to  improve this by providing quality education at SOS schools.

In Chad, there is currently one SOS school and one SOS nursery. 

SOS Primary School N'Djamena Chad

 These facilities provide education to children from the SOS Village and the wider community. Staff members are well trained and the resources available to students are of a high standard. 

Below you can find an overview of the SOS Children education projects.

Claude's story

At ten years old, Claude lives with HIV and has to organise himself to take his medicines every day. Despite feeling poorly some days, he achieves good results at school and would like to be a pilot one day.

SOS schools in N'Djamena

The SOS nursery at N’Djamena has between 75 and 100 children, with around 20 from the SOS village. The nursery is split into three groups: Older (5-6 years); Middle (4-5 years); and Young (3-4 years). Children take part in a wide range of learning and play activities. Classes start in October and the end of the school year is marked by a celebration day.  

The SOS primary school at N’Djamena has between 250 and 300 students, with around 100 coming from the SOS village.  

A group of children from N'Djamena, ChadManaged alongside the nursery, the school has pass rates for each year of 65% or above. Of those who sat the Primary School Certificate (CEPT), the success rate was 100%.

As well as providing academic schooling, the school fosters relationships and activities with the local community. Due to a shortage of electricity in the area, many high school students come to study at the school in the evening.
