The Unreached Peoples Prayer Profiles

The Territorial Collectivity of Mayotte is a French ruled island territory located off the eastern African coast. It consists of one large island (Mayotte) and several smaller islands. Though natural resources and exportable commodities are limited, Mayotte is more prosperous than the rest of the Comoros Islands through French aid and a French military base.

Unlike the other islands in the Comoros group, which became independent in 1975, Mayotte chose to remain a French overseas territory. French rule is challenged by the Comorian government, but neither the locals nor the French have shown much enthusiasm for change.

Mayotte has freedom of religion, and though 96.9% of the population is Muslim, mosque attendance is low. Direct evangelism is permitted, though not necessarily well received.

Of 1,739 unreached peoples on the current Joshua Project List, only 1 is located in Mayotte.
