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 is present in Ukraine since 2015. In 2020, TGH completed an intervention with an emergency Covid-19 response funded by UNICEF supporting healthcare, educational and social institutions and households of Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts (GCA) along the then contact line with electronic vouchers for essential hygiene.

Following the February 2022 invasion, TGH mobilized its teams on the ground and at headquarters to maintain its existing activities and develop an emergency response to meet the immediate needs of the affected populations. TGH quickly started various assistance programmes funded by different donors to cover the basic needs and respond to the psychological distress of the affected households and individuals. In 2024, TGH is implementing 2 different projects, while others are under discussion. To implement these activities in the most affected areas of Ukraine, TGH has developed and reinforced the collaboration with local partners that are essential and take a crucial place in the global response.

Initially operational in Ukraine from Kramatorsk, the team has been relocated to Lviv where the main TGH office is. Given the enormous needs all around Ukraine and the different grants awarded, TGH opened 3 sub-office in the other main cities of Ukraine (Vinnytsia, Cherkasy and Dnipro) in order to be closer to the beneficiaries and ensure a proper implementation and follow up.

TGH is a member of the following Clusters and Working groups: Protection, Age and Disability Working Group (ADWG), Mental Health and Psychosocial Support Working Group (MHPSS WG), Food Security and Livelihoods Cluster (FSLC), Agriculture Working Group, Cash-based transfers Working Group (CBTWG) and WASH cluster. As part of a BHA-funded consortium in the country, TGH is also the sector lead in Protection and thus defines the strategy and direction for the consortium in Protection. TGH also led the development of an SoP on Case Management for the Protection Cluster in Ukraine, and has trained around 50 service providers in Ukraine on Case Management, significantly strengthening national mechanisms for case management.
