II. Context

The project seeks to contribute to the prevention of Trafficking in person (TIP) by raising awareness in targeted communities on the issue of TIP as well as by providing capacity-building to protection actors working in refugee camps on TIP identification and referral. In particular, the project wishes to provide potential victims and witnesses with the knowledge and skills to access protection and assistance including specialized services (medical, legal, psychosocial, safe shelter, family tracing and reunification etc.) , thus contributing to successful prosecution and protection but also to the spreading of awareness messages at community level.

To achieve this, one of the project activities is to organize awareness raising sessions for border communities’ leaders and members, distributing information material in local schools, markets and main areas in the districts to raise awareness on TIP. The activities aim to reach up to 300,000 border community members in the districts of Huye, Rusizi and Rubavu.

It is against this background that IOM seeks a service provider to disseminate messages on TIP. This activity should be conducted in line with the Government of Rwanda’s measures to combat the spread of COVID-19. Implementation modalities shall include community sensitization using radios in congregation points (markets, bus stations etc) and mobile vans to reach large audience of people in border communities.
