Background and Objectives of the Assignment:

The project has already made significant achievement. Under the reintegration component, the project has profiled 1,961returened migrants, and 556 migrants received economic reintegration support. One hotline centre has been established with a toll-free number, and 2,197 calls were received. District coordination committees and Upazila migration forums have been formed to support the migrants and their families. Furthermore, 20 migration fairs were organized at the District, Upazila and Union level to aware migrants and communities on safe migration, reintegration and remittance management with local and national level stakeholders. And four media award ceremonies were organized to recognize media reporting and reporters.

The Migration Governance component of the project aims to support the Government of Bangladesh and other migration actors to manage migration at all levels. The component has made significant contributions.

Through the Awareness Raising component returning migrants, aspirant migrants, families, communities, and local government and private sector actors are empowered to make informed migration decisions, practice, and promote safe, orderly, and regular migration behaviour, including remittance management. Under this component, “Bdeshjaatra” (https://bdeshjaatra.com/), a self-sustainable digital information platform that provides information on safe migration, sustainable reintegration, and remittances management, was developed. An estimated 1,343,623 people were reached through the mass public campaign, including video shows, IPT Shows, Tea-stall Meetings, Pot Songs and School Programmes. Additionally, through the public service announcement with TVCs, radio jingles, drama, and TV talk show, an estimated 1,302,255 people were reached.

Most importantly, the project reached millions of individuals on safe migration, migration governance, and reintegration both online and offline. Based on project achievements, challenges, and opportunities, IOM proposes to develop a documentary video and run a digital media campaign to disseminate information about the project.
The selected service provider is expected to produce the following materials in adherence to the IOM house style manual, data protection principles, and the project visibility guidelines.
