A 2014 report, Modern Slavery in Nepal: Understanding the problem and existing responses (accessed here), estimates that 230,000 Nepalis are subject to slavery at any given time, and nearly 30 percent of the economically-active population is unemployed or underemployed. The Hamro Samman project is a five-year program generously supported by the American people through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and the British people through the United Kingdom’s Department For International Development (UK aid) and implemented by Winrock International. It seeks to build the capacity of and facilitate coordination among the Government of Nepal (GON), civil society, and private sector to combat human trafficking in Nepal.

The Hamro Samman (HS) Project is undertaking a significant mass and multi-media campaign on countertrafficking in persons (CTIP) that must reach 2.5 million Nepalese. Multiple organizations (HS subgrantees) will implement the campaign, with content development and overall coordination by a single communications campaign vendor. The project seeks a consultant to develop a sound and meaningful methodology for measuring the reach and impact of the campaign, based on established best practices.

  • Aspiring and returning migrants in the foreign labor migration sector (FLM).

  • Workers’ and migrants’ rights and legal recourse.
  • Availability of services for TIP survivors and at-risk people.

Distribution Methods: Mass media (national and local radio, television and print outlets, and print advertising such as billboards and posters); social/digital media (including sub-grantee social media pages, news portals, websites, smart phone applications and e-bulletins); direct print distribution (flyers, briefers, stickers, posters) at targeted access points (shelters, recruitment agencies, ES business places, community announcement boards, etc.), and direct person-to-person messaging at HS project events and activities.
