Section 1: Introduction, Technical Background and Scope of Work
1.1 Introduction: Amalima is a seven-year USAID Development Food Aid Program (DFAP) (2013-2020) implemented by Cultivating New Frontiers in Agriculture (CNFA), an international agricultural development organization, that works with over 120,057 direct participants to sustainably improve their food security and nutrition in Zimbabwe’s districts of Bulilima, Gwanda, Mangwe (Matabeleland South), and Tsholotsho (Matabeleland North).
Amalima draws its name from the Ndebele word for the social contract by which families come together to help each other engage in productive activities such as land cultivation, livestock tending, and asset building. Amalima builds on existing communal initiatives in order to sustainably improve household food security and nutrition by improving access to and availability of food, community resilience to shocks, and nutrition and health among mothers and children in the target districts. In order to achieve this objective, Amalima fosters women’s empowerment and gender equality as a cross-cutting component to the program that underpins all activities.
Over the seven year period, Amalima has worked to improve sustainable access to and availability of food, by promoting climate and conservation-sensitive agriculture practices; strengthened community resilience to shocks, by partnering with communities to improve livelihoods and build resilience through the creation and strengthening of disaster risk reduction (DRR) committees through cash for asset activities, household asset vouchers, and village savings and lending (VS&L) groups that promote income generating activities and savings to build household resiliency; improve Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (WASH) practices, dietary diversity, and micro-nutrient intake of pregnant and lactating women and children under two by distributing supplementary feeding rations and enhancing nutrition care practices; and promote gender equality by empowering women to play a key role in food security and resiliency at the household and community levels through increased access to and control over incomes, while promoting men and women to take increasingly equal responsibilities for both productive and reproductive activities.
To highlight the results and successes of project activities, Amalima requires a video production firm to produce four videos with English and Ndebele versions. The purpose of this RFP is to solicit proposals from local and regional video production firms to conduct the following scope of work. Offerors are responsible for ensuring that their offers are received by CNFA in accordance with the instructions, terms, and conditions described in this RFP. Failure to adhere with instructions described in this RFP may lead to disqualification of an offer from consideration.
