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, Europe, 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 operational bases (Geneina in West Darfur; Um Dukhun, Golo and Zalingei in Central Darfur). In addition, in 2020 TGH opened a new base in South Kordofan (Al Abassiya). All projects are coordinated from the Khartoum main office. TGH works in the fields of water and sanitation, hygiene promotion, NFIs/Shelters, education, food security and livelihood and would like to develop his integrated protection (child protection) component.

As a targeted nexus country, TGH’s strategy in Sudan consists of ensuring continued responses to humanitarian emergencies as they arise (flooding, conflict); but also to shift and expand development-oriented programming.  Key program areas for further development are TGH’s FSL programs, along with Education and Child Protection; while maintaining TGH’s presence as a WASH sector leader..
Ongoing operations include:

TGH is currently funded in Sudan by a set of different donors: ECHO, IOM (RRF), CDCs and CIAA.

Security, working and living conditions

Based in Khartoum, the Country Director will perform regular short-term missions to Darfur bases. Security situation in Darfur 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 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 fully 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. Individual accommodation is optional. Communication means are good (efficient internet, international phones).

Khartoum enjoys different places for extra-professional activities: markets (souk), 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.
