Title: Request for Proposal (RFP) - Service Provider - Graphics Design of IEC Materials on Trafficking in Persons (TiP) And Production of a Sensitization Video Animation
Despite significant efforts of the Federal Government of Nigeria (GoN) to counter trafficking in persons (TiP), Nigeria remains a country of origin, transit, and destination for human trafficking. Driven by the demand for cheap labour and commercial sex, trafficking rings across borders and within countries capitalize on economic, social, and political vulnerabilities to exploit their victims. Irregular migrants along the Central Mediterranean route to Europe are particularly at risk. While the National Referral Mechanism present in Nigeria provides guidance on the referral process and stimulates the need for a multi-sectoral approach in the provision of assistance to victims of trafficking, the actual operationalization of the referrals and provision of comprehensive rehabilitation and re-integration assistance, is relatively weak.
To address this, IOM under the Special Measures Project funded by the European Union as part of the EU-IOM Joint Initiative established structures under the Awareness Raising component. The main objective is to enable migrants and potential migrants make informed decisions about their migratory journey and to sensitize communities.
To achieve this, IOM seeks to develop an animation video to sensitize source communities on trafficking in persons (TiP) issues, establish solutions to address stigma and foster rehabilitation and re-integration and also design and develop appropriate Information, Education and Communication materials (IEC) with key messages on Trafficking in Persons, safe migration, raising risks on irregular migration. All the proposed IEC materials will be developed through a participatory approach in coordination with key partners such as National Orientation Agency (NOA), National Commission for Refugees, Migrants and Internally Displaced Persons (NCFRMI), and the National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP).
Purpose of Assignment
To provide graphic design, illustration and multimedia-printing services for IEC materials for the Special Measure Project: EU-IOM Joint Initiative for Migrant Protection and Reintegration Project and to produce a 2D two-minutes video animation to sensitize source communities on trafficking in persons (TiP) issues, raise awareness to reduce stigma and foster rehabilitation and reintegration.
Scope of Work / Work Assignments:
