Chad is a landlocked Central African country with 140 People Groups, 72 People Groups remain unreached according to the Joshua Project. Three religions co-exist in Chad: classical African religions, Islam, and Christianity. However, there is a great divide in Chad between the northern peoples (Muslims) and the southern peoples (Christian/Animist) which sometimes erupts into violence. The largest People Group is the Chadian Arab. The Chadian Arabs arrived from Sudan in the 14th Century and were primarily nomadic shepherds and slave traders. The Chadian Arabs are Sunni Muslims but do not seem very interested in the more fundamentalist variants of Islam.
