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  in Geneina (West Darfur) in 2004 and then extending 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, Jazeera and Sennar. TGH has more than 70 national staff in the field, and is recruiting more, 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 approximately 10 expats (based in Chad & Sudan depending on Sudan visa availability).

Sudan offers one of the most challenging but rewarding contexts in the world for humanitarians to operate in. 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. Now more than ever, this is important as the country faces what is forecast to be a widespread famine in the coming months.

As part of TGH’s scaling-up of its humanitarian activities in Sudan, we have joined a consortium implementing a new Emergency Response Mechanism (ERM) program throughout the Darfur region. This position is an exciting opportunity to lead TGH’s protection-related activites under this ERM programming, boosting the organization’s technical and operational capacities for emergency response, and support life-saving activities at a critical time for Sudan.
