Prequalification of Design Creative Individuals at Girl Effect April, 2024

Who We Are

Girl Effect is an international non-profit that builds media that girls want, trust and need. From chatbots to chat shows and TV dramas to tech, our content helps adolescent girls in Africa and Asia make choices and changes in their lives. We create safe spaces for girls, sharing facts and answering questions about health, nutrition, education, and relationships, empowering girls with the skills to negotiate and redefine what they are told is possible “for a girl”.

Our reach is 50 million and counting. And we’re using technology to reach girls at scale so every girl can choose to be in control of her body, her health, her learning and her livelihood.

Because when a girl unlocks her power to make different choices that change her life, it inspires others to do so too. She starts a ripple effect that impacts her family, community, and country.

That’s the Girl Effect.

What We Do

Tujibebe is a mobile-first digital brand that provides teenage and adolescent Tanzanian girls with the information and inspiration they need to make choices about their health, learning, and livelihood—from setting up a small business and saving for the future to speaking up about body concerns and visiting a health centre.

Meaning “let’s lift ourselves up, together” in Swahili, Tujibebe brings young people together to overcome life’s challenges and realise their ambitions.

Tujibebe’s content is accessible online whether girls own or borrow a mobile phone – connecting with girls via a radio drama, radio chat show, interactive audio stories, and digital channels. Our Interactive Voice Response (IVR) line features inspirational stories and advice from female entrepreneurs, top tips and quizzes – girls can call for free using Tanzania’s most extensive network provider, Vodacom.

Over the next two years, Girl Effect aims to generate an innovative and scalable digital campaign and conversations to support adolescent girls and young mothers during a period of unprecedented global upheaval.

This campaign will leverage and supplement the growing momentum and conversation around ‘vaccines’ in the wake of COVID-19 by engaging and empowering adolescent girls and young mothers with communication to tackle internal barriers to HPV vaccine confidence and myth resistance, and build them up to become enthusiastic adopters and ambassadors of HPV vaccine.

The Scope

Girl Effect Tanzania is in the process of identifying Creative Design Partners who will support and shape the design growth of our content brand in Tanzania over the next two years to help educate and create awareness among women. To support our current and future programming at Girl Effect Tanzania, we need to be agile in collaborating with experts who can use our expertise in social and behavior change communication as a springboard for creating compelling and engaging designs for young audiences.

We want to create a roster of known Creative Design individuals we have vetted and can call upon when relevant and aligned projects arise at Girl Effect Tanzania. We would like to work with

Illustrators – to design content across a variety of media but not limited to:
Website, Facebook & Instagram, Magazine, Calendar, Poster, Brochure, Tshirts
Graphic designers – to design content across a variety of media but not limited to:
Social media posts for Tujibebe
IEC Materials for print-off (Posters, Brochures, Flyers)
Communication materials for on-ground activities (Roller Banner, Backdrop Banner, Sign Pos)
Design page content such as Magazine and information books ( max 20 pages )
Design of Mural in Illustrations
Design of generic Tujibebe assets for conferences

If you work in the creative industry and are passionate about unlocking the power of girls, then we would like to work with you.

We believe that building steady creative partnerships will reduce the time spent on administrative processes such as agency identification, onboarding, and due diligence, giving us all more time to focus on building great products and great content.

How will it work?
We do not expect one applicant to fulfil all our criteria, but we welcome applications from individuals who can help us understand how their experience, knowledge, and skills could enable us to reach our objectives around unlocking change for young people through media and tech.

We are extending the opportunity for you to potentially join our Create roster on a retainer contract for one to two years, with agreed-upon rates. This positions you to become an integral part of the team, playing a crucial role in creating a better world for girls.

IMPORTANT: Please ensure you send in your submissions and register using this link. Consultants must be available from June 2024 and be able to jump onto projects with a lead time of no more than 2 weeks. The Girl Effect team will provide a clear brief for pieces of work based on an agreed-upon template, for which the vendor will propose the number of days required for completion. We will be using Asana to keep track of all activities and would need the vendor also to be able to update progress as per the set-up activities.
