Presentation of TGH

"Actor in a sustainable and shared solidarity"

Founded in 1994, TGH is a French international solidarity organization based in Lyon. The association designs and implements emergency, rehabilitation and development programs in the following sectors: water, hygiene and sanitation, civil engineering, food security and rural development, socio-educational and psychosocial. TGH is currently operating in 11 countries in Africa, Asia, Europe and the Middle East.

Context

The regional conflict in Iraq and Syria started in 2011 and since then, it has torn families apart, displaced millions of people inside the country and pushed other millions to look for refuge in neighboring countries and in Europe.

The Kurdistan Region of Iraq (KR-I), hosting 97% of Syrian refugees within Iraq, also hosts around 700,000 internally displaced people. Furthermore, the KR-I faces a budgetary crisis which presents serious challenges in the access to services (e.g. education) for displaced and host community populations.

The defeat of ISIS’s last remaining strongholds in Iraq is currently leaving ground for reconstruction and IDPs’ slow and unplanned return to their home villages and cities. However, in places such as West Mosul and other large areas that underwent severe destruction and where services are lacking, returns face structural limits (absence of livelihood opportunities, lack of public services, shelter…) and Iraqi people continue to be displaced in camps in Ninewa or in the East bank of Mosul.

In this context, inter-community tensions are still present while military groups contribute to the political shaping of the areas retaken from ISIS. Despite the loss of the territories it used to control, ISIS cells are still present and active across the country and conduct frequent attacks.

Starting from October 2019, anti-government protects started in Baghdad ad spread all over the country, in particular in the southern regions. In some cases, these led to violence against civilians, although this has not been reported in Ninewa, where TGH’s expatriate staffs are based. By the end of 2019, the then Prime Minister resigned and was not replaced until May 2020, leading to a protracted institutional crisis while the country was hit by the Covid-19 pandemic. During this time, strong tensions between military and political actors exacerbated and attacks against US emissions in Iraq become more and more frequent.

Presentation of TGH mission

TGH worked in Kurdistan from 1995 to 1999 in the education and agriculture sectors to support refugees from Turkey. In 2013, TGH reopened a mission in Iraqi Kurdistan and conducted several projects in Erbil: WASH in schools, Winterization distribution and progressively specialized in Child Protection and Livelihood sectors.

TGH provides psychosocial support to thousands of children and their families in the IDP camps of Khazer and Salamyiah as well as in the Balad area (Salah Adin Governorate). TGH coordinates the care and response provided to child protection cases requiring external support (medical NGOs, national child protection services, etc.) to ensure children receive the most appropriate care.

The organisation is also implementing food security and livelihood programmes focusing on water resource management, rehabilitation of agricultural infrastructure, veterinary care, economic recovery and population empowerment. These programmes help to revive agricultural economic activity, a crucial sector in rural Iraq, and encourage people to return to the villages where they belong.

TGH have opened sub-offices in Baghdad and in Mosul for the Mosul / Hamdaniya operations.

Presentation of the project

This project will be implemented in Sinjar area, as a second phase of a similar project and will target 200 rural households under a CDCS funding through a voucher scheme and 100 to 150 households through animal health services.

Through the design of a digital catalogue of input, equipment and services, targeted households will receive support to relaunch their agricultural activities. Some households will also be given the opportunity to access quality animal health services through the deployment of a mobile veterinary clinic and support to existing veterinary clinics.
