Goré (Arabic: غوري‎) is a town and the capital of the La Nya Pendé in Chad's Logone Oriental Region.

Near Goré, the refugee camps of Amboko, Gondjé, and Dosseye along the Pendé River have been home to refugees from the Central African Republic.[1][2] As of 2009, "in and around Gore, over 15,000 children ... [were] currently enrolled in the more than 25 schools supported by UNICEF. This includes more than 6,000 refugee pupils.[3] UN agricultural programs are helping the refugees move towards food self sufficiency.[4][5][6]
