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 10 countries in Africa, Asia and the Middle East.

Presentation of the mission

TGH is present in Sudan since September 2003, and opened its first project for the victims of the Darfur crisis in one of the IDPs camp in West Darfur (Riyad camp of Geneina) in June 2004. TGH has since extended its activities in West Darfur and Central Darfur, implementing its projects through 5 operational bases (Geneina in West Darfur; Bindizi, Um Dukhun Golo and Zalingei in Central Darfur). All projects are coordinated from Khartoum main office. TGH currently works in the fields of water and sanitation, hygiene promotion, NFIs and shelters, food security and livelihoods, and education.

TGH’s strategy in Darfur consists in shifting gradually and where appropriate to more development-oriented programming, while maintaining the capacity to provide humanitarian assistance when needed.

Ongoing operations include:

TGH is currently funded in Sudan by a set of different donors: SHF, ECHO, EUROPEAID, USAID, IOM (RRF), UNICEF, AFD and CIAA.

Context of the assigned mission:

In the last few months, Sudan has been the theater of unprecedented civil manifestations. Despite a severe repression, the revolts progressively led to the fall of the government in place for 30 years. Henceforth, Sudan is governed by a transitional council partly composed of civilians in charge of leading the country towards the demanded change. Those recent shifts in the social organization offer new perspectives of action and challenges for TGH in the area.

As a response to those recent events and changes, TGH is willing to further develop its activities and to seize the opportunity given by the new government in place to access new areas and address uncovered needs. Consequently, the present position stands at crossroads, linking the long-standing presence of TGH in the country and its perspectives of development, giving then new challenges of action.

Security, working and living conditions

Based in Khartoum, the Evaluator will perform regular short-term missions to the field (Darfur, South Kordofan (to be defined based on the assessment needs). Security situation in Darfur and Kordofan is very variable from place to place and period. Field-visits are authorized when security conditions allow it. The movements to the field-bases are ensured by United Nations Humanitarian Air Services- UNHAS.

Current social context in Sudan, especially in Khartoum, can lead to temporary tightened security procedures (movement restrictions, etc.).
Health risks are limited and there is little prevalence of malaria or other diseases in Khartoum. Quality medical services are available in Khartoum.

The mission in Khartoum has an office/ guesthouse of a significant size (4 floors) providing adequate separation of work and living space. Communication means are good (efficient internet, international phones).

Khartoum enjoys different places for extra-professional activities: markets, swimming pools, gardens, access to cultural sites out of Khartoum. The social life is rather rich.

There are daily flights to regional and Europe destinations and expatriates go out of the country every 3 months for breaks.
