Creative Agency for ELPR Campaign
Topic: (1) Ending physical and humiliating punishment and (2) promoting male-caregiver participation in Southern Thailand (Narathiwat province), among Deep South caregivers of children aged 0–6.
Save the Children is seeking a creative agency to help launch our campaign, (1) to design a social behaviour change communication (SBCC) strategy, to drive attitude change towards misconceptions in early caregiving among caregivers; and (2) to roll out the implementation of the campaign activities in 2021.
The campaign will be addressing two issues in early caregiving (children aged 0–6):
2. Eat Play Love Read (EPLR) Campaign
Save the Children aims to give every child, no matter where they live, the best start in life through our Early Childhood Care and Development (ECCD) programmes. Our programme in Si Sakhon district (Narathiwat province, Southern Thailand), Eat Play Love Read, has sought to improve ECCD through a combination of parent education sessions (PES) and the development and distribution of quality, age-appropriate, Patani-Malay children’s books and home-learning materials.
This upcoming campaign is an important part of the programme’s initiative to reach a wider group of audience to promote ECCD, as well as tackle two issues that affects childhood development. We identified that there are gaps that the project seeks to address, both in relation to the limited role of men as caregivers for young children and in relation to the use of physical and humiliating punishment, which is an accepted practice for many in the Deep South.
The project has conducted a market research on the first year to help inform creative agencies on how we can take the campaign forward strategically, as well as campaign report of the past two years under the campaign name ‘Rak Loog Hai Buag’. Through this public local campaign, our aim is to deliver the following objectives below.
(1) To increase awareness, understanding, and ultimately practice of positive discipline in early caregiving, and reduce the use of physical and humiliating punishment in home settings among primary caregivers in targeted districts in Narathiwat, Southern Thailand.
(2) To increase support for and engagement of male caregivers in early caregiving in targeted districts in Narathiwat, Southern Thailand. How can the campaign redefine fatherhood and challenge traditional beliefs on the limited roles and responsibilities of fathers, while empowering them to take on a more active role as caregivers to their children?
3. Priority Target Audience group
Deep South male/female caregivers (aged 20–40) of children aged 0–6, residing in Si Sakhon district and Rueso district (Narathiwat province, Southern Thailand).
4. The ‘mood’ of campaign
This campaign is positive, fierce and empowering.
On positive discipline – The campaign should make it clear that positive discipline is vital to the growth and development of their children. It should raise the profile of positive discipline as a solution rather than highlighting the negative impacts of physical and humiliating punishment (corporal punishment), and should not blame and shame parents.
On male-caregiver participation – The campaign should aim to create a new environment where male-caregiving is supported and celebrated, and encourage fathers to be more involved and active in early care-giving.
5. SCOPE OF WORK – Campaign Creative Output
The key outputs will include: (1) a social behaviour change communication (SBCC) campaign strategy, presented in PDF format as well as Microsoft word (.doc) or PowerPoint format (.ppt); and (2) the implementation of the campaign plan and activities in 2021, along with impact/evaluation report.
