ToR for Best Practice Documentation – Together for Mothers and Children (T4MC) Project

Background: Together for Mothers and Children (T4MC) is an initiative, which contributes to improved health outcomes including reduction of child mortality and improvement of maternal health.

The initiative is implemented by Deutsche Stiftung Weltbevoelkerung (DSW) in partnership with Women Fighting Aids in Kenya (WOFAK) and the Ministry of Health (MoH) targeting two informal settlements in Mombasa County – Bangladesh and Maweni.

The initiative sought to promote access to Safe Motherhood by addressing issues of health seeking behaviour, capacity building and strengthening health service delivery systems through the action’s three result areas:
1. Improved Maternal Child Health (MCH) and Reproductive Health (RH) seeking behaviour among women and young people.
2. Increased capacity of health service providers and resources to deliver quality healthcare.
3. Strengthened healthcare service delivery system in two informal settlements.

Objectives of the best practice documentation

The T4MC Best Practices documentation seeks to identify and document innovative best practices by project initiatives for promotion and replication within the health sector from the grassroots.
The documentation shall provide an opportunity to highlight and publicise feasible program examples that can attract funding and build capacities of the organized groups in the organization of best practices.

The video documentaries should provide an overview of the T4MC project.

They should promote the project and provide evidence to the viewer that the approach used in it’s implementation was cost effective, sustainable and also replicable (showcase evidence of change and impact).
The documentaries should demonstrate and communicate implemented interventions towards achieving project impact while promoting DSW’s work and donor visibility.

Guiding principles

The Production of these video documentaries is to be based on the project’s successes and best practices across the two informal settlements, focusing on different aspects of the project.
DSW will retain overall charge of the content of the documentaries by doing the interpretation on what the project is meant to achieve.
In consultation with project staff led by the Communications coordinator, the consultant is expected to develop a script and use it to build up the short documentaries using available video footage and where necessary new footage to be shot in the field.

The production process should therefore:

  • Examine the guiding script provided by DSW and build short stories.
  • Examine and edit selected video footage recorded during T4MC live events to build the story and where necessary capture additional footage to complete the story.
  • Interview project team members to build the story behind our success.
  • Interview project beneficiaries and stakeholders to build the story
  • Include English sub-titles as appropriate
  • Include a voice over/narration for continuity
Timeline: All deliverables to be completed and submitted to DSW by the 30th September 2017.
