1. Background

This consultancy is a part of the project “Tackling Modern Slavery from Viet Nam: An interagency programme for behaviour change, access to justice and reintegration support” funded by the United Kingdom’s Home Office.

This project will tackle modern slavery from Viet Nam through harnessing the capacities of IOM, World Vision and British Council to implement a coordinated series of interventions that specifically align with existing work in Vietnam, and United Kingdom Official Development Assistance requirements.

On the basis of IOM research, the project will target five key target provinces: Nghệ An (Yên Thành; Diễn Châu districts); Hải Phòng city (Hải Phòng city; Thủy Nguyên district); Quảng Bình: (Đồng Hới city; Bố Trạch districts); Hà Tĩnh (Can Lộc; Nghi Xuân districts); and Quảng Ninh (Hạ Long city).

Under the prevention component, the project aims to prevent vulnerable populations from becoming victims by reducing vulnerability to modern slavery through changing behaviours and attitudes through digital and live events targeting specific vulnerable groups at risks of trafficking.

2. Overall Objectives

The overall objective is to produce materials for the Project’s Behaviour Change Communication  (BCC) strategy with key messages and content, in coordination with IOM to prevent vulnerable Vietnamese from migrating irregularly and ending up at-risk of trafficking and slavery in transit and destination countries by equipping themselves with accurate information to make informed decision of migration.

The expected outcomes of this consultancy will include the followings:

Outcome 1: Production of one song composed by Singer Phan Manh Quynh in which the key massages of the BCC are conveyed. The song – with uplifting beat and memorable lyrics that are easy to sing along to – will primarily target young aspirant migrants who are contemplating their migration decisions. The song will embody the overall message of “Nghi truoc Buoc sau” (Think Before You Go) with subtle safe migration tips and a general guidance on how to make smart migration decisions based on careful deliberation of accurate information on migration options. Ideally the song will be associated with the short film series “Nghi truoc Buoc sau” which was produced under the project.

Outcome 2: Production of one music video for the song to show the singer and community’s solidarity and engagement in spreading the campaign’s messages.

Outcome 3: Apart from the song and music video, the mass media campaign will include an online story telling contest which aims to unveil the diversified stories of migrants that reflect any part of their journey: the decision-making process, recruitment process, departure, and life in the destination country and return. The consultancy will advise and support IOM to publicise and promote information about the contest to target audience, including engaging Singer Phan Manh Quynh in the advisory board and award ceremony, and through various means of communication including providing technical solutions to stream the awarding ceremony online. The ceremony will be scheduled for the International Migrants Day on 18 December 2020 at Green One UN House, Hanoi.

Outcome 4Promotion of the short film series “Nghi truoc Buoc sau” on national television channels to maximize outreach and diversify the pool of audience as a way to spread the key messages more widely and ultimately to promote the campaign on a national level.

Outcome 5: Aiming at enhancing the impacts and ratings of the mass social media campaign, digital media solutions to maximise the distribution of produced outcomes on various media channels will contribute greatly to the BCC strategy. The distribution of the outcomes will be made in a creative and innovative way to ensure they are adaptable to particular platforms.

The content in details will be described and finalised in the proposal, after discussing with the recruited consultants. The products will be shown to all community audience, particularly the primary audience of young aspirant migrants.

3. Specific Tasks

The consultant, or consultant team, will be required to:

  • Work closely with IOM for a deeper understanding of the TMSV Project and agreement on the content and messages of the song and music video
