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, education and psychosocial. TGH is currently operating in 10 countries in Africa, Asia, Europe and the Middle East.


There are 2.5 million people in need and 961 thousand people in acute need in Iraq (HNO 2022), including IDPs and returnees.

The defeat of ISIS’s last remaining strongholds left 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 (lack of livelihoods and public services, destroyed or damaged housing, lack of social cohesion).

Iraq’s social and political landscape has changed drastically after the unprecedented demonstrations in October 2019 that led to the formation of a new government, the Covid-19 induced health and economic crises, and the escalation of power both at a regional and international level. Strong tensions between military and political actors exacerbated and attacks targeting US missions in Iraq become more and more frequent. In February 2022, Iraq’s parliament indefinitely postponed the presidential election after most major political blocs boycotted the vote.

Sectarian tensions remain high, while military groups contribute to the political shaping of the areas retaken from ISIS. Despite its defeat, ISIS reappear across the country and sleeping cells conduct frequent attacks and ambushes.

Presentation of TGH mission

TGH used to be active in the Iraqi Kurdistan Region and in Baghdad between 1995 and 2006. In 2013, TGH came back to Iraq to respond to the needs of new Syrian refugees.
Currently, TGH provides a comprehensive set of child protection activities: social accompaniment, psychosocial support for vulnerable children and their families, parenting sessions, etc. At the same time, TGH is committed to building the capacity of local actors involved in child protection (training/coaching of social workers, training of trainers, etc.), in line with the strategy of localization of aid and sustainability of action. Finally, TGH provides skills training to youth to strengthen their livelihoods, resilience and employability. This includes access to digital and entrepreneurial skills development sessions, work-based learning opportunities, and scholarships to launch their businesses.

In addition, TGH implements programs to strengthen the Food Security and Livelihoods of populations affected by the destruction of fields and production factors in agricultural areas, as well as by the measures taken in response to the Covid-19 crisis. TGH contributes to the rehabilitation of infrastructure necessary for local agricultural activities, access to production factors and inputs, and the improvement of the health and growth of livestock. These actions are part of a dynamic of reconstruction and revival of agricultural economic activity, in order to support the return of the population, their autonomy and the stabilization of the impacted areas.

TGH’s coordination office is in office in Erbil and sub-offices in Mosul, Sinjar, Dohuk and Sulaymaniyah. A new office will open in Tikrit during the first half of 2022. 

Ongoing interventions

A note about TGH project management: While restrictions related to Covid-19 pandemic are slowly reducing, access to a number of locations controlled by the GoI might continue to be restricted and could translate into a number of activities being managed at a distance with new arrangements and set-ups to put in place.
