Short-term Consultancy: Advertising Company
For the design and production of a campaign promoting an online edutainment series
Deadline for application: 15 May 2018
Oxfam is seeking a professional advertising company to design and produce an advertising campaign promoting our 30 episodes edutainment series targeting youth in East Jerusalem. The series will be broadcasted online on the edutainment website which will be designed separately.
A promotion strategy is to be created in coordination with Oxfam and its partners, the Edutainment Expert, web production
Objective: The objective of the strategy is to drive over 32 000 young Jerusalemites (age 18 to 29) to watch the online series and engage online, share their opinions on the issues and themes addressed throughout the series. These themes include youth identity formation, social norms, women’s rights, gender roles, and positive forms of self-expression.
This deliverable is part of the activities of a consortium project entitled “Wujood; Strengthening The Resilience Of Vulnerable
Palestinian Communities In East Jerusalem” funded by the European Union.
Wujood is an Arabic term that means existence and presence. The term is a depiction of the resilience of Jerusalem’s Palestinian inhabitants who are struggling to claim their right to live in their city and preserve their Palestinian identity.
According to international law, East Jerusalem is an integral part of the Occupied Palestinian Territory. Yet, the Government of Israel implements policies that further fragment and isolate East Jerusalem from the rest of the West Bank as well as from the Gaza Strip. Its residents are subject to discriminatory measures on a daily basis, preventing them from accessing basic services and leading a dignified life. This creates a coercive environment, which directly threatens the right of Palestinians to stay in Jerusalem
and significantly erodes the viability of a future Palestinian State, with East Jerusalem as its capital. Through Wujood project Oxfam is dedicated to strengthening the resilience of vulnerable Palestinian communities in East Jerusalem, until a political solution is found to allow them to reclaim their rights.
Wujood- Strengthening the Rights of Vulnerable Communities in East Jerusalem is phase II of this program funded by the EU and co-financed by Oxfam. This multi-sectoral project is implemented by four Palestinian organizations working with Palestinian women, youth, teachers, CBOs and other members of the community. The project aims to strengthen women’s rights, emergency response, economic empowerment for women, and the identity of youth. Program activities are taking place in some of East Jerusalem’s most vulnerable communities including Silwan, the Old City, Sur Baher, Esawiyyeh, and Al- Tur. Implementing partners include: the Women’s Centre for Legal Aid and Counselling (WCLAC), the Palestinian Medical Relief Society (PMRS), and the Palestinian Counselling Centre (PCC), and the Palestinian Agriculture Development Association (PARC).
