Presentation of TGH

"Actor in a sustainable and shared solidarity"

Founded in 1994, TGH is a French association for international solidarity based in Lyon. It designs and implements emergency, rehabilitation and development programmes in the fields of water, hygiene and sanitation, food security and rural development, socio-education and psychosocial support. TGH is currently active in 10 countries in Africa, Europe and Asia.

Presentation of the mission

TGH has a long-standing presence in Sudan: first implementing a multi-sectoral program targeting displaced people and host communities in Geneina (West Darfur) in 2004, it extended its presence to Central Darfur (Bindizi and Um Dukhun) in 2005 and 2006 respectively. Since then, TGH has maintained a continuous presence in both states, despite an increasingly complex context, and has also intervened in Khartoum, Gedaref State, Al-Jazeera State, and South Kordofan.

Since the outbreak of the current Sudan conflict in April 2023, creating the largest displacement population in the world at current time, TGH has developed multi-sectoral projects in consortium with other international NGOs to meet the needs of crisis-affected populations in Darfur, Khartoum and Jazeera states. TGH has more than 100 national staff in the field, based in Golo, Um Dukhun, Bendasi, Zalingei (Central Darfur), Geneina & Foro Baranga (West Darfur), Sennar state, and its coordination office in Port Sudan. It has more than 10 expats based in Chad & Sudan.

TGH’s extensive and long-standing presence in Sudan, in particular in West and Central Darfur, enables us to understand the context and the evolution of humanitarian needs and to deliver life-saving humanitarian assistance where it is needed the most.

Ongoing activities include:

With a current volume of approximately 14 millions, TGH in Sudan is funded by donors such as ECHO, BHA, OCHA-SHF, and CIAA (French MoFA).

Safety, working and living conditions

The DCD-P will be split their time between Sudan (Port Sudan and Darfur) and N’Djamena, Chad, with potential travel to all TGH field locations in Sudan. The conditions in N’Djamena and Port Sudan are comfortable with most modern conveniences. In field locations, living conditions are basic. Telephone network and internet coverage are limited. Social life is limited for security reasons. The context in Chad/Sudan can lead to temporary tightened security procedures (movement restrictions, etc.). There are regular flights to and from Chad and Sudan to regional destinations and expatriates are entitled to R&R breaks every 3 months.

Conditions in Darfur and other TGH areas of intervention in Sudan present risks that are known and controlled by TGH and other international NGOs operating there.
