TOR: Creative Agency COVID Campaign (Tanzania)
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, igniting their confidence to act differently at a time that can define their future.
We create safe spaces for girls, sharing facts, and answering questions about health, nutrition, education, relationships, and so much more. To arm girls with the skills to negotiate and redefine what they are told is possible “for a girl”.
Our reach is 20 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. She starts a ripple effect that impacts her family, her community, her country.
That’s the Girl Effect.
Context of Assignment
Tanzania finds itself in a unique context with regards to the COVID 19 pandemic.
As the 3rd wave continues to spread, the government has consolidated an effort to battle the spread of the virus – encouraging Tanzanians to practise preventive measures and take the vaccine, emphasising the latter.
However, uptake of the vaccine has been low, with only about 30% of the vaccines administered as of 1st September. More worryingly, only 30% of those vaccinated are women. This low uptake has been partly due to the general spread of misinformation about the virus, causing vaccine hesitancy.
We want to commission a creative agency to develop a campaign that complements the government’s ongoing Ujanja ni Kuchanja campaign and empower our audience with the following information;
- Getting a COVID 19 vaccine is a critical way to protect yourself from getting sick.
- Getting a COVID 19 vaccine is a critical way to avoid going to the hospital for medical care.
- Getting a COVID 19 vaccine is an essential step to protecting your loved ones from sickness.
The creative agency will work with us to create;
- Three 2 min videos, each featuring an influencer and health expert talking about vaccine benefits, busting myths and encouraging other Tanzanians to get the shot. These will be edited to;
- One 60 sec mashup of all 3 videos.
- 30 sec cut down of each video.
- 15-sec snippet of each video focusing solely on one vaccine benefit takeaway message.
- 10 x 15 – 30 sec Vox Pop videos. Masanja is a local comedian known for doing these kinds of videos. See example.
- 10 x Static posts with information on; how to get the vaccine, outcome expectation, information snippets on vaccine efficacy and safety.
- 2 x Health expert live Q&As – using IG stories (myth-busting and information sharing).
- 10 x Mythbusting memes.
- Develop a simple design language for the Ujanja ni Kuchanja campaign: logo, fonts, and an essential style guide.
- Develop short audio mnemonic to build familiarity with the campaign and to accompany the campaign creatives.
What you’ll do:
- Ensure the Tujibebe images appeals to its young audience and attracts new listeners to both the drama, cementing a trusted relationship with its audience
- Prepare a brief entailing the creative approach and production timeline.
