We held a permanent presence in Chad from 2007 to 2011. In 2007 we were awarded a contract to provide international advisors to help build and then develop a local Chadian capacity to safely search for and clear UXO to international standards.
From 2008 to 2011, we provided route survey, clearance and Mine Risk Education in the south east of Chad. As part of this project we also conducted BAC for the World Concern Development Organisation, clearing 497,301sqm of land.
We set up three local support offices in Abeche, Iriba and Goz Beida to support its operations. We trained hundreds of local national personnel and established a network of experienced local deminers, Team Leaders, medics and support staff, including mechanical personnel, cooks, cleaners and drivers.
