Call for Consultant: Developing a child-friendly  booklet for street children on how to stay safe during the COVID-19 pandemic

CSC is looking to hire a consultant to develop the text/script for a child-friendly, illustrated booklet for street-connected children on how to stay safe during the Covid-19 pandemic. The booklet will provide street-connected children with information on how they can stay safe during the pandemic, presented in a mostly visual way with some explanatory text so that it is as accessible as possible. No illustration or design skills are required. CSC will hire an illustrator/designer for this purpose.

Tasks / deliverables:

  • Review the report sent to the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child by CSC on
    the impacts of Covid-19 on street-connected children, and other relevant documents
    which illustrate the unique vulnerabilities of street-connected children during the
    pandemic.
  • Review guidance published by the WHO and other public health organisations on
    Covid-19 and how to stay safe.
  • Consult and seek inputs from CSC members and CSC staff on how
    street-connected children can stay safe during the pandemic.
  • Develop a draft script (an overview of what illustrations should show and how the
    text should accompany them) for the booklet and present it to CSC, members, and
    selected experts for review.
  • Revise the draft script based on inputs from CSC, members, and selected experts.
  • Revise illustrated publication

Qualifications, experience and skills:

  • A good understanding of the lives, vulnerabilities and needs of street-connected
    children
  • Demonstrable experience developing child-friendly publications
  • Excellent written and spoken communication skills in English
  • Ability to keep strict deadlines
