Request for Proposals: Videographer
Objective / Outcomes Agriteam Health Tanzania is inviting proposals for the services of a Videographer (individual or team) to film, edit and produce a series of ten short (1-3 minutes) videos. These videos will showcase the impacts of the Mama na Mtoto Project initiative implemented in Mwanza region, told through the voices of project partners, stakeholders and beneficiaries. Video themes, content, and interview subjects will be identified and outlined by the Project prior to filming. Final decisions on video content will be made by the Project team, in consideration of the advice of the Videographer.
The Videographer will conduct the filming with project partners and stakeholders in Mwanza town and in Misungwi and Kwimba districts. Editing and production can be done by the Videographer at their normal place of work.
Background Mama na Mtoto is the initiative of a consortium of Tanzanian, Ugandan and Canadian partners that seeks to improve maternal, newborn, and child health (MNCH) outcomes in rural Tanzania. Mama na Mtoto builds on the successful MamaToto Initiative implemented in Uganda by Mbarara University and the University of Calgary. In 2016, regional and district health leaders in Lake Zone of Tanzania adapted the MamaToto approach for the local context in Mwanza Region.
We believe that community members, health providers and leaders can best manage local health needs. Working together with local government and existing health facilities, we support communities to adapt and lead activities to address their own health challenges. Our philosophy is that sustainable and impactful change occurs when our activities reach all levels and include women, men, boys and girls.
This program is undertaken with the financial support of the Government of Canada provided through Global Affairs Canada. The University of Calgary is the lead partner of the initiative. Mama na Mtoto activities are implemented in Misungwi and Kwimba by Agriteam, with support from Tanzanian technical partner the Catholic University of Health and Allied Sciences (CUHAS-Bugando). Other initiative partners include the Mbarara University of Science and Technology, Save the Mothers, and the Canadian Paediatric Society.
A linked research project, funded by the International Development Research Centre, is implemented by CUHAS-Bugando and the University of Calgary, in collaboration with the Initiative partners noted above.
