Logo Triangle génération humanitaire


1998 ... 2014

With its experience in Iraqi Kurdistan, in partnership with UNHCR, the association decided in early 1998 to provide assistance to Somali refugees fleeing civil war and taking refuge in Yemen.

For seven years, Triangle Génération Humanitaire has developed programmes for refugees, including social and educational support, the creation of income-generating activities and the improvement of sanitation infrastructures. Over that period of time, TGH also contributed to the construction of a new site offering improved reception conditions.

Subsequently, many projects have been implemented in various regions of the country, mainly focusing on water and sanitation and food security.

At the end of 2010, when political unrest, still shaking the country today, erupted in Yemen, TGH was operating in five regions through the implementation of emergency programmes (Governorate of Hajjah), rehabilitation programmes (Governorate of Hadramout) and Rural Development programmes (Governorates of Hodeida and Shabwa, on the Island of Socotra).

In May 2011, three expatriate employees of TGH were the victims of a kidnapping that has deprived them of their liberty for nearly six months. Since then, TGH's activities in Yemen have been limited to a single programme, and other project opportunities are currently under study. TGH's operating conditions in Yemen, now adapted to the current context, underwent lasting change.
