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.
The Regional conflict in Iraq and Syria will complete its sixth year with no rapid end in sight. It has torn apart families, displacing more than 11 million individuals: more than 7 million inside the country and more than four million who have fled the conflict in search of safety in neighboring countries, including Lebanon, Jordan, Turkey, Egypt and Iraq, and further afield in Europe (507,421 persons by the end of September 2015). More than 240 000 Syrian refugees were still settled in Northern Iraq as of July 2018, most of which in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq refugees (source: UNHCR). Overall, Iraq has seen major displacement of an estimated three million persons within its borders due to the advance of ISIS and subsequent fight to push them out of Iraq.
As of September 2018, still more than 1,9 million people were displaced in Iraq, out of which 1.3 million in the 4 northernmost governorates of Ninewa, Dohuk, Suleymaniyah and Erbil, where TGH operates. More than 4 million people are recently returned.
The defeat of ISIS’s last remaining strongholds in Iraq is now leaving ground for reconstruction. However, in places such as West Mosul that have seen severe destruction or remote areas where services are lacking, returns are not happening fast and Iraqi people are still displaced in IDP camps of Ninewa or the East bank of Mosul. Furthermore, the political and military stalemate between the Federal Government and Iraqi Kurdistan which followed the 25th September Kurdish independence referendum is keeping the tension high along the disputed territories, and plummeted Kurdistan into a budgetary crisis which presents serious challenges in the access to services (e.g. education) for displaced and host community populations. More recently, Iraqi elections, whose outcome is still uncertain to this date, put an additional level of inter-community tensions as military groups contribute to the political shaping of the areas retaken from ISIS.
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, Education and psychosocial support. Since 2016, TGH has deployed an emergency response supporting Iraqi IDPs in three camps of Ninewa Governorate (Khazer M1 and Nimrud, Salamiyah 1 and more recently Salamiyah 2 camps) with child protection services and education in emergencies. TGH has also been conducting and still developing livelihood activities towards vulnerable returnee households in rural Tilkaif / Hamdaniya districts. More recently TGH have opened sub-offices in Baghdad and in Mosul for the Mosul / Hamdaniya operations and develop further project in Federal Iraq.
Presentation of the project
As part of a consortium of NGOs including Mercy Corps (consortium leader) and PAO (National NGO), TGH will be in charge of implementing the irrigation, livestock and agro-infrastructure of a 3 year project funded by the French Development Agency (AFD) starting beginning of 2019. The PERMA project (Promoting Economic Revival for Microbusiness and Agriculture project) is a 10 million Euros action in which approximately 3 million are allocated to TGH. In addition to the sectors of activities to be implemented by TGH, a micro-finance and economic recovery component will be conducted by Mercy Corps, a transversal Social Cohesion pillar being implemented by PAO.
The project will be implemented in Ninewa governorate, more specifically in the district of Hamdanyia which was under ISIS control for more than two years. Historically, Hamdanyia district has been hosting an important diversity of religious and ethnic groups of population, this population medley and the social cohesion having been strongly impacted by ISIS control over the area.
Two years of ISIS occupation, exile of populations and military operations have extensively damaged the agriculture and small business sectors; irrigation, agriculture and economic assets have been destroyed or looted, destocking was used as a coping strategy by breeders and significant levels of damages are recorded in the value chain infrastructures.
