In Chad, the Daresalam refugee camp hosts more than 5,000 refugees from Nigeria and Niger. Here, every individual has fled atrocities and violence that plague their countries. The camp’s school is the only place where Yande Tchari, 17 years old and in first grade, feels safe. “Only in class am I able to take my mind off things. School gives me the opportunity to learn always something new,” she says.
In March, 7 incidents were registered in Diffa region with 22 casualties (16 civilians), including 3 girls between ages 12-15 with explosive belts who were killed by security forces before they were able to detonate their explosives.
Du 31 mars au 1er avril 2016, IRC a réalisé une évaluation multisectorielle (MSA) dans le village d’Adjeri dans le département de Nguigmi.

ABOUNGA, Niger, 22 March 2016 – When we meet Gambo Ali at the Abounga spontaneous site for displaced people, she can’t tell us her age. But she tells us about how she sold food in the streets of her village, Tam, for a year, to help support the family.
Tam is in Diffa region, in the south-east of the Niger, close to Nigeria. Like many other families at the Abounga site, Gambo and her family fled their home to escape violence and threats from the group Boko Haram.
• UNICEF scaled up its response in Diffa region and monitoring by strengthening its presence in the field and supporting partners in the provision of basic social services to affected populations in spontaneous sites along the Route National 1 and in Bosso department.
• Nearly 9,000 children returned to school thanks to the partnership between UNICEF, the Ministry of Education and COOPI, which allowed the setting up of temporary learning spaces in spontaneous sites and the strengthening of existing school to host displaced students.
