Since 2014 and the emergence of the Islamic State (IS) in Iraq and Syria, conflicts have led to numerous losses, destruction and population displacements. TGH works with children, the most vulnerable population in the face of these profound upheavals.

TGH and the Iraqi NGO Justice Center have been implementing child protection and legal assistance activities in Balad, Yathrib, Aziz Balad, Samarra and Al Mutassim since February 2019. TGH is now the only international NGO providing child protection services in this southern region of the Salah al-Din Governorate. This action is in line with the projects aimed at strengthening child protection services previously implemented in the region. This project is being carried out in partnership with the Iraqi NGO Justice Center, which provides its expertise in legal assistance. TGH brings its technical expertise in child protection developed through its field experience and the many interventions already carried out by the organisation in this sector in rural and urban areas and in IDP camps in Iraq.

The project aims to provide child protection services and legal assistance as well as to strengthen community-based risk prevention and intervention mechanisms. Thus, emergency and long-term responses will be put in place, building on systems and services already implemented in previous projects.
