Centre for Communication Impact (CCI)
Commissioning Brief – Masiphephe Video Content Production
Centre for Communications Impact (previously known as JHHESA) is a section 21 South African entity that uses strategic communication to improve the health and well-being of all South Africans.
The organisation requires the services of a Film Production Agency to produce and deliver video content on Gender Based Violence (GBV) to support the objectives of the Masiphephe Network Project. The Masiphephe Network is a unique project funded by USAID designed to enable local authorities and civil society organizations to work together to reduce GBV in their areas and to improve access to justice and victim empowerment.
CCI is implementing the Masiphephe Network project in partnership with the University of Cape Town (UCT) Gender Health and Justice Research Unit (GHJRU) and four community based organizations, namely, ADAPT and Sonke Gender Justice, PSASA, Gugu Dlamini Foundation and Ethembeni Crisis Centre, to implement the Masiphephe Network Project in selected locations in the provinces of Gauteng, Mpumalanga and KwaZulu-Natal.
Masiphephe Video Content
In support of the Masiphephe Network project’s intermediate results to strengthen community governance and accountability; address the spectrum of violence against children, adolescents and young women, including sexual, physical, and emotional abuse and neglect; improved mitigation of GBV harms (tertiary prevention) and; improved access to justice for all victims and survivors of GBV, a series of video content consisting of Masiphephe Learning Videos and GBV Personal Stories of Change will be produced. The Masiphephe Learning videos will be used to facilitate peer learning and sharing on key elements of project implementation.
The GBV Personal Stories of Change will serve as a communication tool to raise awareness and engage communities on the key drivers of GBV including harmful social norms and behaviour, enable target audiences to identify their own risk of becoming perpetrators or victims of GBV, as well as empower them to take action to reduce such vulnerabilities. The video series will be used to facilitate discussion as part of the structured intervention activity packages and messaging will emphasise on the following themes:
- How patriarchal norms and beliefs contribute to GBV
- Link between Mental Health/PTSD and GBV
- Impact of GBV on children – men who are abused as children are at risk of perpetrating GBV /women who have been abused as children are at risk of becoming abused adults
- How substance abuse can contribute to rape & abuse
- Economics of GBV
The videos should communicate to men and women living in the LSM 1 – 6 bands aged 15 – 34, and GBV implementing organisations.
Videos will be developed in a mixture of English and the local languages spoken in the Masiphephe project sites including IsiZulu, siSwati, and seSotho. English sub-titles will be used for translation of all vernacular expressions used.
