Chad is one of Africa’s poorest nations, mainly because of years and years of fighting. The fighting stems from religious and cultural differences between Muslim groups, who live mostly in Northern Chad, and Christian groups, who live in the south.

Northern Chad is a hot, dry desert, while the southern area is fertile farmland. Here, people grow cotton, millet and sorghum and raise cattle.
