Scope of Work
International Communication Consultant – ENGINE Program
The Coca-Cola Company, in strategic partnership with the UK Department for International Development’s Girls Education Challenge (DfID-GEC), is funding an innovative, multi-year, girl-focused project – Educating Nigerian Girls in New Enterprises (ENGINE) – to improve the learning outcomes and economic status of 18,000 marginalized adolescent girls. Mercy Corps Nigeria leads the implementation of the ENGINE program in the Northern states of Kano and Kaduna, the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), and the metropolis of Lagos, targeting both Out-of- School Girls (OSGs) and In-School-Girls (ISGs) within 9-month intervention and implementation cycles.
The ENGINE program is based upon a theory of change stating that when marginalised girls complete a full cycle of education and are supported by gatekeepers, they will be more skilled employees and have increased earning power and increased decision-making within the household. A chain of impact results are expected at the girl, household, business, community government policy and regional levels to achieve project outcomes following sustained engagement with gatekeepers including parents, faith & traditional leaders, government, teachers and other relevant stakeholders.
Purpose of Consultancy: With the ENGINE project in the exit phase and implementation activities gradually winding down, the emphasis is increasingly shifting to creating impact content, donor-focused reports, and relevant documents to secure commitments from stakeholders who support girls’ education and economic empowerment. The consultancy will focus on creating content for communication materials aimed at high-level stakeholders and the donor community to increase funding opportunities for future projects.
Consequently, the consultant will develop content for strategic communication via scripted dramas, poems, recitations, infographics, newsletters, pamphlets, stickers and other Information, Education and Communication (IEC) materials targeted at changing the perception of gatekeepers on girls’ education and economic participation. Each communication material is expected to tell the ENGINE story.
Specific Tasks: The consultant will be required to undertake the following tasks:
- Review end of project report and ensure that the report covers outcomes and outputs of the ENGINE program from inception to completion.
- Synthesize project impact statements into an easy-to-read report for segment stakeholders.
- Review 40 success stories for the ENGINE stories of change pack to ensure compliance with DFID standards.
- Review draft tool kit, including replication model and lessons learned document to ensure compliance with DFID standards.
- Review footages For ENGINE documentary and ensure a high quality film is developed
