Programmes

Republic of Congo

Called upon by an organization from Lyons founded by a Congolese migrant, the NGO decided in 2010 to carry out an assessment in the Republic of Congo, which soon resulted in the submission of a proposal to the European Union, consisting of the boosting of the rural development activities of a local NGO, the FOJEP-Development. After the obtaining of the first funding asked for, the Congo Mission opened in December 2011, and it is currently working for its own development.

The major humanitarian crisis in CAR and the endemic poverty in the Republic of the Congo impact juveniles in a situation of great vulnerability - street children, incarcerated or experiencing situations of social disruption or family break-up – who are still exposed to multiple forms of violence.

With financial support from UNICEF, EU, private foundations, and now AFD, TGH has been working with vulnerable children in Bangui since 2011, and in Brazzaville and Pointe Noire since 2013.

  • The programme integrates institutional actors in connection with child protection, who are trained on legal provisions. It provides support to street children (daily rounds performed by the mobile field unit), and organizes events for incarcerated juveniles. The reception centers also benefit from improved sanitary conditions.
  • In addition to being placed in a reception center or in a temporary foster family, juveniles experiencing situations of social disruption or family break-up receive support as well as academic refresher courses (or training) in order to prepare their social reintegration.
  • Finally, the programme includes a capacity building component for the coordination offices of partners and member associations. In fact, TGH considers that the collaboration with a local partner is essential for the implementation of activities, the achievement of results and programme ownership by our partners. Ultimately, these partners will aim to implement all activities in an autonomous way.

The main expected results are:

  • Awareness-raising of State actors on children's rights and on legal and social devices for the protection of juveniles.
  • Strengthening of the organizational and operational skills of the coordination offices of RFERC and REIPER.
  • Establishment of prevention devices for the protection of juveniles at risk in Bangui and Brazzaville
  • Guidance and implementation of services aiming at the social reintegration of juveniles experiencing situations of social disruption or family break-up.

  • Beneficiaries: 16,000 direct beneficiaries and 90,000 indirect beneficiaries
  • Partner: TGH's project partner supported by Caritas Congo

The project defines different actions to support Agricultural Interest Groups (GIA), which aim to optimize the use of existing resources (land, markets, local opportunities and institutional support) to improve the living conditions of rural communities and contribute to eradicate extreme poverty.

The three main objectives are:

  • Reduce the difficulty faced by producers to sell their products;
  • Reduce the costs of quality input supply;
  • Restore the dissemination of technical knowledge and improved practices.

The combination of TGH's technical expertise with Caritas Congo's knowledge of targeted areas - the NGO also has a local network and a recognized legitimacy – will help reach these goals. Affirming its willingness to promote actors from the South, TGH is part of the action as implementing partner of Caritas Congo, and was chosen as the official project carrier.

Towards local economic development for the preservation of the environment

  • Funding: EuropeAid Cooperation Agency (European Commission), Ministry of the Interior and Overseas Territories, French Embassy in Congo, PADE
  • Partners: FOJEP - Development

This site was intended to train young people in agricultural skills and to provide a space for meetings and exchanges between the farmers belonging to the Pool. During the civil war in Congo, many buildings and infrastructures have been looted and destroyed. FOJEP-D was therefore forced to stop all its activities until 2003. Since then, thanks to the involvement of its office in Lyon and to the commitment of its volunteers, FOJEP-D was able to resume its activities in new locations, enabling it to welcome a few trainees again.

The programme focuses on the restarting of FOJEP – Development's activities. It will rely primarily on the NGO's rural resource center inLoukakou (district of Ngoma-tse-tse, Kinkala), which will be the epicenter of the programme. From there will be developed and motivated a network of local actors acting as vectors of propagation of the practices and activities promoted by the programme, the latter aiming to develop an agricultural entrepreneurship respecting environmental requirements.
