Consultancy to Develop Communication Strategy
Zambia Salary: TBA
The Southern African Centre for the Constructive Resolution of Disputes (SACCORD) is a Zambian based Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) that was formed in 1999 and officially registered in 2000 under the laws of Zambia. The Organization was formed to promote peace and democracy in Zambia and the Southern African region.
SACCORD is currently implementing a campaign dubbed Go Out and Vote Campaign –(GOALTV Campaign) supported by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) under its Democracy Strengthening in Zambia Project (DSZ) with kind support from its cooperating partners.
SACCORD’s Go Out and Vote Campaign (GOTV- Campaign ) is aimed at -in the short term – to provide practical electoral information such as how to vote ,where to vote , rules of engagement. This will empower citizens with the “how information” as provided by official sources . But in the long run, this initiative is meant to mobilise women and youths to critically engage with the electoral players based on political manifestoes on the political market by interrogating them as to their relevance on issues affecting youths and women. SACCORD believes this will galvanise women and youths to actively participate in all the stages of the electoral processes, but over and above, that they will be able to vote, in the long run, citizens will continue to engage with elected representatives beyond 12th August 2021 general elections resulting into responsible political leadership and civically enlightened youths and women able to engage and call out failures on the part of political players.
To achieve these aims SACCORD invites talented communication experts to tender in their proposals to develop a robust communication strategy plan that encapsulates all these issues.
