Consultancy Assignment for Campaigning to counter stigmatization and vulnerability in the Context of COVID 19 Pandemic in Thailand

 

Background:

 

ActionAid is an international social justice organisation operating in over 45 countries in Asia, Africa, Europe, and Americas for a world free from poverty and injustice. With Human Rights Based Approach (HRBA), it aims to strengthening the capacity of active agency of people living in poverty and exclusion to assert their rights. We believe in the power of people to bring change for themselves, for communities and for whole societies.

ActionAid has been working in Thailand since 2001 and registered as ActionAid International (Thailand) Foundation-AAITF in 2011 as local non-profit organization. ActionAid works all over Thailand with communities, civil society organisations, small schools’ networks, government entities, academia, and media to support for changing the lives of the poorest and the most disadvantaged women and children.

In the realm of COVID-19 pandemic, ActionAid International has been responding to most of the countries it operates in Asia, Africa, Europe, and Americas. ActionAid is on the frontline of the coronavirus crisis helping to stop the spread and save lives as the pandemic hits the world’s poorest countries. We are also calling on governments to involve women and their movements in all stages of the response as they know best what their needs are.

Project Background:

 

With the support of European Union (EU) funded project “EU COVID-19 Response and Recovery in Thailand – Nationwide, ActionAid Thailand is responding to the critical needs and challenges that the most marginalised communities have been facing since the beginning of COVID-19 pandemic in Thailand. This project is being implemented in a consortium approach along with 3 co-applicants, Bio Thai Foundation (BTF), Chumchonthai Foundation (CTF) and Foundation for Labour and Employment Promotion (FLEP).

This project responds to different kinds of communities in 38 provinces with their specific needs for relief, recovery, and possible resilience- stateless people residing across the borders of Thailand and Myanmar, migrant working groups from Myanmar, Laos and Cambodia who could not leave Thailand when the lockdown was announced, informal sector workers in urban areas, poor communities in semi-industrial and rural areas, rural poor including smallholder farmers and ethnic minority groups.

As part of the project, ActionAid Thailand involves with different stakeholders on Campaigning to counter stigmatization and vulnerability in the contact of Covid-19 - AAIT (Act 1.2)                                                                            

 

Purpose of the consultancy:

Social media has been a hub for fake news across the world with Thailand being no exception. Due to the large segment of people who do not have access to clear, credible communication about what Covid-19 is, how to protect themselves against it or what measures the government is taking to provide relief and socio-economic support to vulnerable sections of the society, there is rampant sharing of fake news on the social media, which the target groups are falling prey to. The problem of stigma caused by need for quarantining those who test positive to Covid-19, there is also a fear of suppressing symptoms. Today, the current number of cases in the country are increasing and there is uncertainty about how the situation would evolve.

 

Furthermore, due to news and reporters mentioning that migrant workers could be the main reason who brought the second wave of the pandemic in Thailand, people stigmatize them. From this, we aim to shift and reduce intention of stigmatization of people towards migrant workers in Thailand by providing clear information about Covid-19 and counter the stigma caused by it. This is what the campaign on Covid-19 will be about.

 

To deliver the first pillar of the expected outputs of the project to provide access to information for vulnerable communities affected by Covid-19, ActionAid Thailand is looking for individual or organization to provide consultancy service to run a one-year campaign on counter stigmatization in the context of Covid-19 together with ActionAid Thailand.

 

The action will run online campaign continually throughout the action period through public messaging on social media, and mainstream media. ActionAid Thailand experiences on running a successful Safe Cities Campaign on raising awareness on sexual harassment by using digital platform and working with online and off-line media will contributed to effective campaigning. In the end, progress and achievement will be presented in the Project-end conference to CSOs, vulnerable communities, women groups, media agencies and government agencies.
