Invitation for offer: Video production

Location: Sarajevo, Konjic, Bratunac, Zenica, and Živinice Application deadline: 20 April 2021

Type of contract: Service contract Duration of initial contract: 30 days


Under the motto of ‘Leave no one behind!’, the Caritas Switzerland Country Strategy 2021–2025 for Bosnia and Herzegovina reinforces its fight against poverty through the thematic priority areas of income and jobs generation; addressing the challenges of endogen and exogen induced migration; and tackling the linkages between climate change and poverty. In doing so, all Caritas programmes feature a strong social inclusion dimension mirroring our understanding as to which inequality and exclusion are key root causes for keeping entire population groups in poverty.

Caritas’ longstanding presence in the country combined with its technical expertise, familiarity with the regional context and excellent reputation among stakeholders and international and national actors are steppingstones allowing the organisation to rely on long-standing, tested and trustful partnerships both with state structures and NGOs both for project implementation and advocacy with a view to furthering systemic change.

This strategy is translated into practice by strongly emphasizing the rights-based approach as a useful method to simultaneously promote empowerment (of right-holders) and institutional reform (on the side of the state): both are key elements to overcome inequalities and achieve inclusiveness. Together with strong awareness for conflict sensitivity and our commitment to gender equality and empowerment of women and girls, rights-based analyses are thus streamlined into all programmes and projects. Emphasizing ownership and sustainability, we will increasingly shift towards taking a more facilitatory and coordinating role while national structures (municipalities, ministries) shall assume their constitutional obligations and live up to their responsibilities towards servicing their citizens.

Based on a solid financial foundation – prominently featuring considerable shares of local co- financing by national structures from all levels – the strategy has its primary focus on financial stability and consolidation, while at the same time emaining fully attentive to opportunities for careful growth and expansion.

Past efforts to increase programme quality, consistency and knowledge management will be continued with a focus on monitoring, evaluation, accountability and learning (MEAL), capacity development of staff and governmental as well as non-governmental partners and a particular focus on developing and introducing new methods and approaches.
