“…but God has chosen the foolish things of the world to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to shame the things which are strong.” 

1 Corinthians 1:27

Chad is among the poorest countries in the world, suffering from internal conflict and political instability. Many people are marginalised and vulnerable and it is especially difficult for young people to escape from the cycle of poverty, leaving many disillusioned.

Our work

Rope’s partners, Foyer Evangelique Pour L’Encadrement Et L’Education Des Jeunes, are seeking to bring transformational change to the lives of these disillusioned young people. Based in the capital, N’Djamena, their evangelical centre works with the young people developing discipline and their respect so they may become tomorrow’s leaders.  Their hope is that by inspiring strong Christian leaders in the next generation they will create a society based on peace, justice and forgiveness.

 It costs £20 a week to run the handball classes

Through the centre, people are offered training on literacy, health education (including sex, HIV/Aids, alcoholism and drugs).  The centre offers sport for the girls through weekly handball classes, bible education training and a yearly youth camp.

The centre’s work is extended to the parents of the young people, offering parenting classes and provides social assistance for some of the most vulnerable families (widows, orphans or those with disabilities) people to help them generate income.
