Request for proposals: Development of Social Behavior Change Communication (SBCC) package for WASH COVID-19 response, recovery and resilience

The Kenya Integrated Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (KIWASH) Project is a USAID-funded project with a primary goal to improve the lives and health of Kenyan citizens in nine counties through supporting the development and management of sustainable WASH services.

The project seeks a firm to deliver Social and Behavior Change Communication (SBCC) and enhance the impact of WASH interventions across nine counties, particularly efforts to battle COVID-19, mainstream recovery, and resilience in all government WASH programs. The firm is expected to coordinate messaging with the critical stakeholders leading the response to COVID-19 in Kenya, specifically the Ministry of Health, the WASH cluster, and UNICEF. These stakeholders have developed messages and materials, which can be employed or tailored by the contracted firm to fit the county context.

The firm will work in consultation and collaboration with country-led initiatives, USAID partners and local communities to develop and continually update inclusive response and risk communication and community engagement plans and strategies in all project counties. The firm will develop a practical implementation and monitoring plan that will guide activity implementation across nine counties between November 2020 and June 2021.
