In 2013 Zimbabweans put to referendum a draft constitution that had been developed following public consultations. The constitution was approved and adopted in the same year. While citizens had been widely consulted in the development of the constitution, the final document has not been as widely disseminated or known among citizens. Research and anecdotal evidence point to limited knowledge of the constitution among Zimbabweans. Constitutional literacy levels are low among urban youths, persons with disabilities, rural and remote populations. Section 7 of the Constitution of Zimbabwe mandates public awareness of the constitution in various ways including translating it to various languages, teaching it in schools, being part of the curricula in training members of the security services, civil service and employees of public institutions. The section further encourages all persons and organizations including civic organizations to disseminate awareness and knowledge of the constitution throughout society. The knowledge of the constitution is crucial for the realization and guarantee of the fundamental rights of citizens. While citizens adopted the constitution, this does not mean that they understand and know the contents of the constitution as shown by a number of surveys hence the rationale for the Zimbabwe Know Your Constitution Campaign (ZKYC). Two civil society organizations are collaborating on the ZKYC campaign to ensure that women, youths and persons with disabilities have increased knowledge and awareness of the Constitution.
The consultancy seeks the services of artists/agency to develop 2 jingles for the project in audio and video formats with captions/sign language in three languages.
The campaign seeks to develop two jingles that will be the billboard for all of its media based programmes on constitutional awareness. These will include radio and social media platforms. A video to enhance the jingle will also be produced. These jingles will be the theme music for the whole campaign.
