Poorest Areas Civil Society [PACS] Programme is an initiative of the UK Government’s Department for International Development (DFID) in partnership with civil society. PACS empowers socially excluded communities to claim their rights and entitlements more effectively. PACS focuses on socially excluded groups including Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes, Muslims, Women and People with Disabilities. This seven-year programme (2009-2016) aims to support civil society organisations (CSOs) in promoting inclusive local, district and state policies, programmes and institutions. It focuses on areas of livelihood, education, health and nutrition in gender and rights perspectives. PACS programme is being implemented in 90 districts across 7 states of Bihar, Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand, Madhya Pradesh, Odisha, Uttar Pradesh, and West Bengal. PACS programme is managed by the IFIRST Consortium (Indian Forum for Inclusive Response and Social Transformation), the management consultants for the programme which is a consortium of organizations led by Christian Aid with Caritas India, Financial Management Service Foundation (FMSF), Indian Institute of Dalit Studies (IIDS) and Access Development Services.
The seven-year programme is now in its consolidation phase. PACS therefore intends to share the experience and learning of the programme with a wide range of stakeholders. In light of this, a series of closure events in the State capitals and in New Delhi from Dec’15 to Jan’16 will be organized. These events will be of three days duration, which will witness participation from 500 to 800 persons in States and 2000 persons in New Delhi. With a view to organise these events, PACS is seeking services in the following key areas:
1. Event Management
The event management services will include the followings:
2. Media for events
PACS would like to generate media stories around each event, whether through collective media briefings, special stories, interviews with key officials, opinion-edits or through other means. In this connection, we would like to engage a PR agency. The agency is expected to attend briefings at the national office in Delhi and develop and unroll a strategy to help PACS closure events (and the program) gain visibility in print, electronic and digital media. The agency will also be required to submit all media clips and a final report at the conclusion of this engagement.
The activities and ambience of the closure events need to be documented through photographs, short/ long videos, interviews of participants and reports. The agency may also be required to write blogs, face-book updates, and tweets to go on social media. In this connection, PACS would like to hire an agency that can cover these events and provide high quality, professionally – made videos, photographs and reports.
