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 11 countries in Africa, Asia, Europe and the Middle East. Context During the year 2014, the humanitarian situation in Iraqi Kurdistan further deteriorated. For many months, Iraq has been plunged into an armed conflict opposing Iraqi and Peshmerga forces to jihadist fighters of the Islamic State. The conflict caused over 11,000 civilians casualties in 2014, and resulted in massive displacements of populations fleeing conflict zones. Currently 2.9 million Iraqis are still displaced within the country among which more than a million are located in the Kurdistan region of Iraq (KR-I). This comes in addition to the 230 000 Syrian refugees settled in KR-I, and regularly continuing to arrive. Military operations to retake the control of Mosul area from Daech began in October 2016 and are still going. The clashes have so far forced more than 137 000 people to flee the area to be hosted in camps. The number of IDPs linked to this military offensive is expected to rise in the coming weeks. Although the KR-I Government has a clear policy of free access to primary and secondary education, schools are however still overcrowded and cannot address the increasing diversity of needs resulting from the enrolment of Syrian refugee and Iraqi IDP children. Refugee and IDP children face particular difficulties adjusting to a new curriculum in KR-I due to language barrier. They often require remedial support to integrate in their new educational environment successfully. In addition, most families’ income does not allow them to bear the cost of sending their children to Arabic schools, all located in Erbil centre and paying for school equipment (uniforms, supplies). This leads parents to encourage their teenager children to contribute to the household’s income through informal activities (selling, begging or any child labour) despite the potential risk of abuses. And all over Iraq, children have been trauma affected as they are repeatedly exposed to conflict stressors such as violence, torture, continuous displacements. Presentation of the mission TGH worked in Kurdistan from 1995 to 1999 in the education and agriculture sectors to support refugees from Turkey. TGH is officially registered in KR-I and Iraq. In 2013, TGH reopened a mission in Kurdistan and conducted 3 projects in Erbil: WASH in schools, winterization distribution, education and psychosocial support. Currently TGH has 3 operational bases in KR-I, one in Erbil, one in Bardarash and an office in Dohuk. In Erbil, TGH is implementing a Cash For Education Project (May 2016 – August 2017) aiming at avoiding drop out and improving the enrolment of Syrian refugee in primary school. A protection project targeting the same beneficiaries is TGH – KR-I – Logistics Coordinator October 2017 implemented as from summer 2016, with the setting up of mobile protection units and community multipurpose centre in Daratoo. In Bardarash, emergency projects in education and protection are implemented in the camp and in the sub district, in order to support the IDP population and to provide support to the families newly displaced from Mosul. In addition to this emergency project, an ECHO funded action is being implemented in the locality to provide protection services and education in emergency to children among IDP, refugee and host communities. In Rabia area, TGH is currently implementing a food security project aiming at supporting local communities affected by the occupation of the area by Daech. Activities focus on supporting local farmers by providing veterinarian care, distributing animals and feedings. In Ninewa, TGH is currently implementing child protection programme in IDP camps of Khazer and Salamiya, funded by ECHO and OCHA Iraq Pooled fund.
