Sahayatra II Project background

Save the Children together with its local partners is implementing the Integrated Program – Sahayatra II (2019-2023) in five municipalities of three remote hilly districts in the Karnali State of Nepal: Jajarkot, Dailekh and, Kalikot districts. The project is funded by Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation (NORAD). Sahayatra II seeks to enhance the institutional capacity of local and state governments and civil society to respond and create an environment for survival, protection, development, and participation, with a focus on children’s learning, development, and protection from violence; safe school; teenage pregnancy and child marriage; and the underlying framework of child rights governance. The project contributes at the state and federal level to impact change at scale and sustainable impact.

The project targets two municipalities and three rural municipalities of Karnali State: Tilagupha Municipality and Subhakalika Rural Municipality of Kalikot; Gurans Rural Municipality of Dailekh; Chhedagad Municipality, and Kushe Rural Municipality of Jajarkot district. Likewise, it works with 49 wards, 249 schools, 278 ECCDs and 49 Ward Child Protection Committees (WCPC).

Save the Children’s Current Country Strategy Plan 2022-2024 commits to identify and support action strategies that create an environment for children at home and in the community to survive, learn, and be protected. At the same time, child participation is one of the working principles of Save the Children that cuts across all themes and projects. The plan and working principles are supported by one of the most innovative concepts of the project, Sahayatra II, called Child Champions. The project plans to document this as one of the best practices of the project. These ‘’Child Champions’’ are working as child campaigners who aim to assure that children’s rights are protected, respected, and fulfilled in any context, i.e., humanitarian, and development. They are raising the voices of children from the most disadvantaged and marginalized communities and advocating for governments to hold children’s rights accountable. They are the community of children who regularly sensitize the duty bearers for their survival, development, protection, and participation. They are the role models for other children in the community. There are altogether 98 child champions. Moreover, 23 of them are using mobile tablets with the help of which they present multi-media videos for community sensitization against child marriage, violence against children (VAC), and issues affecting children in the community, as well as pandemics like COVID. At the same time, these champions are representing children in different structures, mechanisms, and local level planning processes to influence government for public resources for children. Child Champion as a champion can contribute to promoting child rights in their family and community, which will contribute to achieving the Country Strategy Plan 2022-2024. This intervention has worked as a key means in promoting children’s rights to participation.

This particular video documentary film is expected to provide the success stories of child champions, capture their work in their communities on child rights, learning from the program, positive changes brought in their lives, and accomplishment of the vision set by the project initially and way forward for sustainability. The film will be shared with our donors and for internal purposes, likewise, external sharing on social media and different platforms.

To capture this best practice, the consulting crew will have to visit Jajarkot and Kalikot. The short video will be produced based on individual stories of child champions, with the run time being no more than 4-5 minutes and two (one minute) clips for social media posts from the same.

Objectives

Save the Children ensures that children’s unique needs are met, and their voices are heard. We deliver lasting results for millions of children, including those hardest to reach. Therefore, we expect a short video of not more than 5 minutes and two video clips of one minute (each of two child champions for social media post) to capture one of the best practices of Sahayatra II, known as ‘Child Champions’ program, which is targeted at raising the voices of the children by the children themselves. The video will be developed to meet the following objectives:

  • To capture the positive change brought out in the lives of the children, and their families after being designated as child champions.
  • To capture their work, successes, and acceptance in schools and communities.
  • To capture the innovative approach of the project and its ever-lasting impact on the lives of children themselves (sustainability).
