According to wholevehicles, Chad, officially known as the Republic of Chad, is a landlocked country located in the heart of Africa. It is bordered by Libya to the north, Sudan to the east, Cameroon and Nigeria to the south, and Niger and Nigeria to the west. The country covers an area of 1. 284 million square kilometers and has a population of around 15 million people. The geography of Chad is mainly comprised of desert in the north and savanna grasslands in the south. In between lies a large central plateau with mountains rising up to 3,000m above sea level in some areas. Lake Chad is an important geographical feature located in Chad’s western region and serves as a source of water for both local inhabitants and wildlife alike. The climate in Chad is mostly hot and dry with temperatures ranging from 25°C (77°F) during the day to 10°C (50°F) at night. Rainfall varies depending on location but typically occurs between June and September with some parts receiving as much as 800mm (31in) each year while other regions may receive no rainfall at all. The official language spoken in Chad is French although there are also over 120 local languages spoken throughout the country such as Arabic, Sara, Kanembu, Maba, Kibet, Dazaga, Barma, Marba etc. The majority of Chad’s population practices Islam although there are also small populations who practice traditional African religions or Christianity. Education in Chad is provided by both public and private institutions at all levels – elementary school (ages 6-12), secondary school (ages 13-18), post-secondary (universities/colleges), vocational training centers, technical schools, language schools etc.. Primary education is compulsory for all children while secondary education is only mandatory for those aged 16-18 years old; however attendance rates remain low due to poverty levels among families as well as limited access to educational facilities in rural areas. Overall literacy rates remain low at around 28% due to a lack of government funding for education as well as gender disparities when it comes to educational opportunities for girls versus boys; however this has begun to improve in recent years due to increased investment in educational infrastructure and initiatives such as scholarships for girls which have helped increase school enrollment among young women across CAR. Post-secondary education consists mainly of universities/colleges which offer programs ranging from engineering and medicine to business administration and social sciences; however due to limited resources available most students opt for technical or vocational training programs instead which provide them with specialized skills that can help them find employment upon graduation from these institutions.
