About Our Partner

CARE Mozambique

CARE began operations in Mozambique in 1984 with emergency assistance and food distribution for people who were affected by the protracted war between government and rebel forces.

From 1990 to 1994, CARE expanded its project portfolio to include disaster recovery and development activities. Following the end of the war in 1992, we focus on implementing long-term development projects, including local water management, sanitation and hygiene, food security and nutrition, early childhood care and development, women´s economic empowerment (including microfinance), and strengthening local civil society action. As part of our historic focus on emergency response, we are now engaging more on disaster risk reduction and climate change in Mozambique.

In CARE’s six year country strategy (2014-2020) for Mozambique, CARE seeks to fight poverty and improve food and nutrition security by empowering women and girls to exercise their rights. This new strategy draws from CARE’s previous innovations and builds on them – emphasizing in particular CARE’s expanded role as a facilitator and development partner with Mozambican colleagues from civil society who are likewise dedicated to transformative, rights-based development in collaboration with the private sector and government.

It is important to note that women are often the most vulnerable to shocks and the most marginalized. Hence, they often suffer the most from natural emergencies and not able to participate as fully in development efforts unless deliberate, strategic actions are taken. This has long-term implications for overall development and ability to reduce poverty if those most marginalized do not participate in the processes.

Terms and Conditions

Cuso International terms and conditions allow you to lead a modest and healthy lifestyle while being effective in your placement. This support package will cover basic living expenses for one volunteer and is not intended to cover home-based expenses (ex. loans, support payments, etc.) or luxury items such as imported items in placement or international personal travel.

The overall objective is to produce 5 videos that can portrait the following aspects of the Aguasani and Sanitation programme:

  1. How the residents of these towns are benefitting from the interventions, in the form of describing how a family’s life has been impacted by the programme (income generation by participating in the programme’s construction activities, better access to WASH services, economic development in the towns due to better accessibility of water / sanitation)
  2. Interventions for inclusive WASH, documenting the case of a family of a person living with disabilities and the interventions around improving WASH services for them.
  3. Improvement of sanitation at community level through community mobilization activities (focus on Xitiqui groups).

Using his own equipment, the contracted videographer will document on video the UNICEF supported activities on the Aguasani programme in all three targeted towns in Inhambane (i.e. capital of districts of Jangamo, Homoine and Morrumbene), All videos must follow the guidelines provided by UNICEF.

Activities and Tasks:

Due to the large scale of the Aguasani project, the production of the 4 videos was divided in two parts.

PART 1: Travel to the three targeted towns in Inhambane province to gather raw footage (in high-definition) of the Construction works and interview beneficiaries.  As part of this consultancy, a 3-days of shooting is envisaged, covering the above-mentioned activities in all three towns / villages.

A previous round of shooting was already completed in November 2017 with a total of 425 RAW/un-edited videos of family interviews and b-rolls of constructions work (high quality sound and image) was delivered. The consultant is expected to use this existing material as the baseline for the development of the final videos, complemented with the materials to be gathered under this Consultancy.

PART 2: To develop a story line for each of the four videos and cover the final editing (launch, family interviews after the launch on how it improved their lives, impact). The delivery of the final products, consisting of 4 edited videos, will be in accordance with story line.

The videographer will need to go to Inhambane to complete the shooting, and produce 4 high quality videos as described above. Regular meetings will be held at UNICEF to discuss the status of the video and footage, and also any other issues.

The targeted communities are the capital of the districts of Jangamo, Homoine and Morrumbene, including the peripheral areas where the water components of the water supply systems are located, and shooting at Government offices in Inhambane and Maputo.

The consultant is expected to start the activities after the signing of the contract. Due to the unknown time factor of the expected celebration event, this activity is to be delayed and the consultant should not delay the other activities.

Management and Supervision:

The contracted videographer will be supervised by Jesus Trelles, UNICEF WASH Specialist for the Aguasani project with support from Claudio Fauvrelle, UNICEF Communication Officer (Digital).

Schedule

A: The contracted videographer agrees to perform this assignment from May to December 2018, UNICEF will provide exact dates later, and 10 extra working days for editing.

B: Develop a video that highlights the role of leader during the process of achieving an open defecation free district.

Background

The practice of open defecation is wide spread in rural Mozambique, and as per latest IOF survey nearly half of the population (48.5%) does not have a toilet. The elimination of open defecation is an explicit SDG target, and the government of Mozambique has undersigned this and aims to achieve this by 2025.  The strategy is by behavioral change communication (BCC) and the approach is Community Led Total Sanitation (CLTS). The CLTS approach facilitates a process of which communities collectively reject this practice of open defecation and assist communities in action planning to construct latrines.

This CLTS approach is currently being implemented across the country, but its origins is probably found in selected districts in Manica and Tete. UNICEF piloted this approach about 10 years ago with the technical support on the development of district sanitation plans. Community level activities were implemented by private sector implementation “participation education and communication” (PEC) contract by DPOPH. Technical and financial support was provided by the UNICEF, and this model has become the standard in Mozambique.

These efforts have resulted in substantial results, and a large number of communities have been declared open defecation free (ODF), including achieving ODF postos and localicades. in some cases districts are close to become ODF, like Macossa, Guro in Manica province.

The leadership and oversight has proven to be crucial to this progress to achieve ODF. District administrators, permanent secretaries ensured this was a key priorities, while technical oversight was provided by the district representation of the ministries of education, public works and health. The leaderships role of the chefe de posto and localidade played a crucial to motivate local leadership, whom in their turn ensured that communities collectively abandoned the practise of open defecation and adopt latrines.

This type of inspirational leadership is required across the country to achieve the national target to become ODF by 2025. Documenting the district’s leadership role and how they drove the results to achieve an ODF district is a tool to allow the learning of other district across the country. A documentation will also motivate the leaders currently involved to reach the last mile and receive the recognition of their efforts and the national level.

Objective

Develop a video that highlights the role of leader during the process of achieving an open defecation free district.

Method

  1. Desk review of available documents, such as district sanitation plans, PEC zonal ToRs, contracts and review documents. UNICEF will provide the required documents to be reviewed.  The consultant is expected to develop interview questions based on the literature review.
  2. Stakeholder interviews: A mixture of leaders from different levels, as the district administrator, permanent secretary, chefe de posto, religious and traditional leaders, as well as technical staff from the departments are to be interviewed for each of the three districts. UNICEF will support with the introduction, but the consultant needs to identify the most appropriate leaders. The interviews should also include household interviews.
  3. Photo and video shooting at the communities: additional footage and photos are expected to be collected at the community level. This would include photos and videos of rural communities and houses where sanitation options are being build, used or maintained. At least one community per district should be covered, hence at least three communities in total
  4. Documentation of celebration: this event is expect to be organized by the Government in the course of 2018 to celebrate the results of the first open defecation free district. This event would event include the provincial and national level presence. In case this event is organized, the consultant is expected to capture the key speeches and recognize the champions, in video and paper.
  5. Drafting of document and video editing: Based on the interviews and the consultant is expected to draft the interview transcripts. The interviews and the desk review document will inform the brochure as well as a story board for the video documentation feed into  into a full report, and edit the video. In consultation with UNICEF, the most important leaders and statements will be selected for the end product video. The final product of the 4 pager brochure is to be developed in consultation with UNICEF.

The consultant is expected to commence activities after signing of the contract. Due to the unknown time factor of the expected celebration event, this activity is to be delayed and the consultant should not delay the other activities. The consultant can submit the draft brochure the story board after the interviews and community shooting. These documents can be adjusted once the celebration has taken place and new material has become available.

Deliverables

This consultant will have to submit multiple interim deliverables and two final deliverables to UNICEF for approval in an agreed time frame. The interim deliverables allow UNICEF to monitor the progress of the consultant, will inform the final deliverables and can be used by UNICEF for other purposes. UNICEF holds the right to reject deliverables based on qualitative and quantitative considerations.

 1. Interim deliverables

  • Desk review document; no more than 5 pages, with story board.
  • Raw visual martials: at least 100 photos and 2 hours video footage.

2. Final deliverables

  • Video: between 5 – 10 minutes

Scope of work and limitations

The scope of work will cover three districts; Guro and Macossa in Manica. These three districts should be fully covered with interviews and video. However, the final product will focus to the best preforming district(s).

The consultant is expected to cover the events and opinions as they appear. It is not the role of the consultant, to ensure that these districts achieve the ODF status or increase the role of leaders.

The component of documenting the celebrations of achieving the ODF status, is subjected to the districts achieving this and to provincial / national government organizing this event. In case this event is not organized, an alternative section can be proposed to replace this coverage.

Printing of the brochure is beyond the scope of this consultancy

Roles and responsibilities

The consultant is responsible for his/ her own logistics, accommodation, video shooting and editing. The consultant is allowed to hire assistance to support shooting and editing, but is under full liability of the consultant.

The Organisation

Plan International is an independent development and humanitarian organisation that advances children’s rights and equality for girls.

We believe in the power and potential of every child. But this is often suppressed by poverty, violence, exclusion and discrimination. And it’s girls who are most affected.

Working together with children, young people, our supporters and partners, we strive for a just world, tackling the root causes of the challenges facing girls and all vulnerable children.

We support children’s rights from birth until they reach adulthood. And we enable children to prepare for – and respond to – crises and adversity. We drive changes in practice and policy at local, national and global levels using our reach, experience and knowledge.

We have been building powerful partnerships for children for over 80 years, and are now active in more than 70 countries.

Plan International Finland is setting up a programme called “My Body. My Future.” for the year 2018-2021. This Programme is firmly anchored in a human-rights transformative approach in terms of its standards and design and reflects a comprehensive approach to Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR). It is composed of an overseas component, involving six projects in five developing countries, Mozambique included; and a domestic component, for activities in Finland. The overseas component focuses more on the sexual and reproductive health theme, while the domestic component has a broader scope of engaging youth and the public on sustainable development and equality for girls.

The Programme involves four Outcome areas:

  1. Build capacity and confidence of girls and boys to use their ‘power within’ to realize their rights and to reject harmful practices, understand, acquire life skills, seek and utilize appropriate services to prevent teenage pregnancy, keep girls longer in school and to prevent child marriage.
  2. Engage parents and communities to raise awareness on the importance of sexual and reproductive health; confront gender stereotypes, address gender and social norms affecting girls, eradicate harmful practices such as child marriage, gender-based and sexual violence, and ensure families invest resources in girls education and protection;
  3. Engage civil society and build its capacities to provide quality counselling to young people on SRHR, to influence and advocate for gender equality at different levels, and to build a global social movement for advancing gender equality and girls’ rights;
  4. Engage with and support capacity development of government and duty bearers to provide quality SRH services and promote equality for girls; improve the policy and legal framework and increase budget allocation in these areas; and strengthen legal enforcement and national coordination.
