The nomadic Wodaabe community belong to the Fulani ethnic group, who are distributed across at least ten North-African countries. Chad is home to many of the Wodaabe. Far from the coast and land-locked, it nestles next to the great Saharan Desert. 

The home environment of the Wodaabe people is called the wuro.

This is a land of stark beauty, unique pride and deep colours – a gift of its proximity to the desert. More than a hundred languages are spoken in this country of an estimated 14.5 million people.
