Teaching in Chad

Could you serve for a year or more to support ministries by teaching in Chad?


In 1987 AIM began work in Chad. Chad boasts 140 people groups of which many remain unreached.

Founded in 2010 by Africa Inland Mission, Wellspring Academy is a day school dedicated to providing quality education for the children of cross-cultural Christian workers serving in Chad.


N’Djamena, Chad

Ministry & Type of work:

Wellspring has about 30 children in grades 1 – 8. There are full-time teachers, teaching multi-grade classes.

Each teacher needs to be experienced, certified, and enthusiastic about the work God is doing in Chad. Cross-cultural experience and multi-grade teaching experience would both be helpful but are not essential.  Specific needs will depend on the need and rotation of full time workers.  There are two main aspects to this role: working at Wellspring Academy and supporting families who home school.

Opportunities outside of the school include teaching in Sunday school and teaching English to Chadians.

Qualifications & Experience:

  • A Teaching degree
  • At least one year’s teaching experience
  • Speaking and understanding French is an asset but not essential
  • Some administration skills
  • A flexible working attitude, with a sense of God’s call to serve others

Other Info:

Housing is provided on site

Duration: a full school year

Start date: as and when required by the School.  Please contact us for dates.

Yes. Whether you go on a team assignment with other short termers, or an individual assignment, you will be part of a team once out on the field. Both teams and individuals will be placed within teams of long term workers and you will be a part of supporting their ongoing ministries.

Listen to one of our missionaries sharing about being a part of a team:

Yes, you must be a born-again Christian with an active and growing relationship with Jesus Christ and agree with AIM's statement of faith. AIM is an evangelical Christian mission agency. We work in partnership with the African church to reach Africa's unreached peoples with the good news of Jesus Christ, and to develop leaders for the fast-growing church.

The short term application process normally takes six months.


As a missionary teacher I’ve seen how vital on-field teaching support is. Not just for the parents but for their children too.

Long term ( Over a year )

Our passion is to see Christ-centred churches among all African peoples. Currently there are over 1,000 people groups in Africa or 316 million people, who are waiting to hear the good news of Jesus Christ. Our vision is to engage with these unreached people, partner with churches in Africa to raise up gospel workers and equip African church leaders to strengthen the church. Could you play a part?.

Chad became independent from France in 1960. Since then, its politics have been characterised by violence, coups and insurgencies. It is a secular state with freedom of religion. Muslims are dominant in government, trade and the army, although they are only just the majority religion (approx 53%). LEARN MORE


Teaching is not just a support ministry. It's vital in sharing the gospel, displaying Christ and helping children and young people to thrive. Could you use your gifts and skills to make Jesus known among the nations? LEARN MORE

Children & Youth

In sharing the gospel with children & young people our hope is to develop disciple making disciples – to demonstrate God’s immeasurable love for children and to offer them the reassurance and peace that a relationship with him can bring. LEARN MORE
