Terms of Reference for the Production of a Video Documentary
General Background.
Catholic Relief Services (CRS) has been honored to serve Tanzanian communities since 1962 in a diverse range of sectors from Health, WASH, Ag/Livelihoods, Nutrition, Early Childhood Development (ECD) and Youth Empowerment/Entrepreneurship. With ECD, CRS implements interventions at national, regional and village levels.

Program description.
Since 2022, CRS has been implementing the program namely ‘Strengthening Faith Systems for Early Childhood Development in Tanzania, Kenya and Mozambique’. The goal is that faith-based systems are leveraged to contribute to improved Early Childhood Development outcomes for children 0-3 years in Tanzania, Kenya and Mozambique. The program has been building capacities of faith leaders to deliver quality ECD knowledge and skills to their congregants and communities. This was done through capacity building trainings and ongoing coaching and mentorships at national, regional and county/ district levels.

The program has also been working with faith networks to jointly identify and incorporate ECD sessions within faith networks’ systems (with their member churches and/ or mosques) i.e., during pre-marital sessions, sermons, faith-based seminars and/ or youth religious session – to mention a few. This was realized through sharing information about how faith networks function during consultative meetings – leading to proposing opportunities within each network to deliver ECD knowledge and skills to adolescent, adult caregivers, and communities.

Purpose and Objectives of this assignment
CRS Tanzania plans to document processes, activities, achievements, challenges and recommendations about the faith systems and leaders strengthening component in the ECD program specifically in Tanzania.
  • The documentary will record testimonies about CRS program engagement with faith systems and how these have influenced adaptation and guarantee sustained ECD activities within faith systems. The videographer will also record the current activities implemented within their systems and their prospects for future implementation contributing to ECD agenda in the country. Faith leaders/ systems will demonstrate how the developed job aids integrate key nurturing care messages supported by holy scripts either from Holy Bible or Holy Quran. The focus on this part will be on faith networks in Tanzania namely: Christian Council of Tanzania (CCT), Council of Pentecostal Churches of Tanzania (CPCT), Tanzania Episcopal Council (TEC) and Baraza Kuu la Waislamu Tanzania (BAKWATA).
  • The documentary will record testimonies from the communities about their perception of the faith-leaders engagement on ECD agenda and how this has positively influenced their uptake of ECD practices unlike secular ECD activities. On the other hand, the community will also explain additional expectations for faith leaders’ engagement and services to be vastly delivered either within the faith systems or in the communities.
  • The documentary will record Government perspective about their contribution to faith systems’ efforts to integrate ECD and ECD advocacy in general. This includes. Government perspective on how faith systems are becoming more influential to advocate for ECD in Tanzania. This part will record different activities implemented by the Government to support faith systems, opportunities available to continue support the agenda and prospects of faith systems on ECD agenda. Finally, the documentary will include a call to action for the need to take advantage of faith systems as resources that are respected, listened by families to support nurturing care.
