Association des Femmes Peules Autochtones du Tchad (AFPAT)

The Association for Indigenous Women and Peoples of Chad (AFPAT) is an organization representing the indigenous peoples in Chad, especially the M’Bororo pastoral and nomadic people of the sahel region. AFPAT was founded in 1999 to serve the needs of the M’Bororo community, especially women, and received full legal authorisation in 2006 under Chad law.

AFPAT is working closely with all the indigenous communities in Chad and connecting their needs to the Government (especially through engagement and advocacy with key ministries). AFPAT is particularly active in climate change and indigenous peoples rights, in both project support and technical advice and helping dialogue between communities and government. AFPAT is an active member of several networks across the region and in Africa.
