2020 Findings on the Worst Forms of Child Labor:

Moderate Advancement

In 2020, Chad made moderate advancement in efforts to eliminate the worst forms of child labor. The Government of Chad adopted a law extending fundamental protections to Chad's refugees and asylum seekers, including the right to access healthcare and education. The government also adopted Ordinance No. 002-PR-2020, which organizes a biometric population registry for births, marriages, and divorces. Lastly, Chad hosted a national workshop to develop a 2021–2026 nationwide school feeding program action plan. However, children in Chad are subjected to the worst forms of child labor, including forced labor in cattle herding and domestic work, each sometimes as a result of human trafficking. In addition, the government did not provide clear data on law enforcement efforts and has no active policies to address child labor, including in commercial sexual exploitation and forced labor.
