    Presentation of TGH

    "Actor in a sustainable and shared solidarity"

    Born in 1994 from the desire to develop a cross-disciplinary and sustainable expertise, TGH is an International Solidarity Organization designing and implementing emergency, post-emergency and development programmes in collaboration with national and international partners (local CBOs, line ministries) through the identification and mobilization of local skills and resources.

    Its action is based on a professional and highly interactive operating mode including several areas of expertise within a comprehensive approach: the programs fall within the fields of water, hygiene and sanitation (WASH), civil engineering (Shelter), food security, rural development (Livelihood), socio-educational and psychosocial (Protection). In 2016, its committed teams operate in 11 countries and manage 65 programs.

    Context

    The Syrian conflict will complete its fifth year with no rapid end in sight. It has torn apart families, displacing more than 11 million individuals: more than 7 million inside the country and more than four million who have fled the conflict in search of safety in neighboring countries, including Lebanon, Jordan, Turkey, Egypt and Iraq, and further afield in Europe (507,421 persons by the end of September 2015). While Kurdistan Region of Iraq is still hosting around 240 000 Syrians, Iraq has seen major displacement of an estimated three million persons within its borders due to the advance of ISIS and subsequent fight to push them out of Iraq.

    The Kurdistan Region of Iraq, hosting 97% of the Syrian refugees within Iraq, is also now host to some one million internally displaced persons, constituting a 25% population increase. Furthermore, the KR-I continues to share frontlines of armed conflict in the “disputed” Iraqi territories since the 25th September Kurdish independence referendum and faces a budgetary crisis which presents serious challenges in the access to services (e.g. education) for displaced and host community populations.

    Presentation of the mission

    TGH worked in Kurdistan from 1995 to 1999 in the education and agriculture sectors to support refugees from Turkey.

More recently, TGH has been supporting Iraqi IDPs in three camps of Ninewa Governorate with Child protection services and education in emergencies. TGH has also been conducting livelihood activities towards vulnerable returnee households in rural Tel Afar / Hamdaniya districts. TGH is currently completing a capacity-building project towards the KRI’s Ministry of Social Affairs focusing on an organizational diagnosis.

    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 2.6 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 240 000 Syrian refugees settled in KR-I, and regularly continuing to arrive.

    The recent offensive on Mosul city brings a major change in the humanitarian context since thousands of people are fleeing the city and the area. This displacement of population requires a complex and large scale multisector humanitarian response.

    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.

    TGH implements mainly an education and protection programme in Kurdistan presently: regular projects targeting Syrian refugees, IDPs and Host Communities, as well as a Mosul emergency response programme. The emergency response programme started on the 25th October 2016 following the official start of the military response to liberate Mosul on the 17th of October 2017. TGH has a child protection and education in emergency mobile and static approach to provide required services to conflict-affected children.

    Presently TGH is mainly intervening in Khazer camp, one of the first and bigger camps settled since the Mosul operation started. More than 29,000 individuals are currently living in this camp. TGH has set up 2 static Child Friendly Space,

A Temporary Learning Space has been established and Non-formal education, recreational and PSS activities are organized on daily basis.

    The International Potato Center (CIP) is seeking a highly-motivated individual for a newly-established position to lead and coordinate efforts oriented to research data management including assuring the quality of biological and social science data sets, assuring that these data sets and associated publications are openly accessible, as well as other types of information products produced in part or in whole by CIP-affiliated researchers and staff.

    The Center: CIP (www.cipotato.org) is a not-for-profit international agricultural research-for-development organization with a focus on potato, sweetpotato, and Andean roots and tubers. Its vision is of roots and tubers improving the lives of the poor.
