  • Population: 239,000
  • Language: Zaghawa
  • Religious Background: Islam
  • 0.05% Followers of Jesus (0.05% Evangelical)

Seen as “Arab” by other sub-saharan tribes and as “African” by Arabs, the Zaghawa have been caught up in the conflict in Darfur. The Zaghawa is a powerful group in neighboring Chad, but in Darfur, many live in refugee camps.

Prayer Request:

Pray for openness to the Gospel, that the few Zaghawa followers of Christ would share, and for a Disciple Making Movement among the Zaghawa.
