Life & Peace Institute Documentation of Success Stories, Best Practices and Lessons Learned of Sustained Dialogue Project Jobs in Ethiopia


Objectives of the Consultancy

This documentation project is composed of two distinct deliverables, requiring two sub-consultancies:

Consultancy 1 (Documentary, long and short versions):

  • To produce a high definition video documentary showcasing changes and impacts brought about by the project.

  • The main purpose is to increase public awareness and to inform about the SD Project as an intervention to build trust, transform conflictual relationships and build peace in University campuses.

  • The documentary will focus on significant success stories of the SD Project, demonstrate the transformative journey experienced by SD participants and how this was translated into impact at the individual and community level.

  • In addition to a more comprehensive documentary, short, social media suited clips shall be extracted.

    Consultancy 2 (Booklet):

  • This will feature exemplary success stories, key achievements, best practices, and lessons learned working with SD on universities in the form of narrative with relevant high-resolution photographs.

  • The booklet will serve to both show and inspire through showcasing positive effects of dialogue and provide more in-depth insights to practitioners interested to work with dialogue in the Ethiopian context.

  • The consultant will also produce a four paged electronic newsletter.

    Methodology

  • The main approach will be consultative and participatory and include key project stakeholders and partners.

  • The SD Alumni will be involved in key activities of the documentation process (especially in the documentary) and the involvement will be determined in consultation with LPI and the consultants.

  • The overall assignment will involve a comprehensive desk review of the project’s documents to understand the overall project objectives, targets, strategies/approaches used and expected results in line with the project’s theory of change before the actual documentation work.

  • The consultants will work under the guidance of the Country Manager.

  • Besides, the Communication Advisor along with the Project Coordinator will coordinate with the consultants for the field visits and to set appointments and arrange for interviews.
