History of Astronism in Chad
The status of the recognition of Astronism in Chad is currently unrecognised and the Astronist Institution has designated the country in relation to religious freedom for Astronists as censorious. This means that Astronists are considered to be a risk of physical and mental repression and discrimination for professing their faith.
The number of Astronists in Chad is not currently known as they are not counted as part of government censuses. An additional barrier for Chadian Astronists to access Astronist content is that the majority of Astronist content has not yet been accurately translated into French.
